Biography

I am a lecturer in Music & Sound Technology and lecture on the department's BSc Music and Sound Technology, MSc Computational Sound, MSc Digital Media and BSc Computing and Digital Sound courses, the latter of which I am also Course Leader. I am an active musician, composer and engineer and was previously Head of the Music Department at Northbrook College. I am a member of the Advanced Games Research Group and have a wide range of research interests in Music Technology with a particular focus on algorithmic composition, physical modeling synthesis and production aesthetics.

Research

My current research applies perceptual analysis models to generate structural descriptions of music, which are then used as meta-templates to generate new algorithmic compositions.
