Please introduce yourself.
I craft & edit sound for commercial enterprise such as games, sound therapy, marketing.
From an early age influences included Hammer films, giallo cinema, Lovecraft, Poe, Peter Straub. After completing a sound tech apprenticeship at a studio in Dublin I fell back into contract electronics. I Developed my existing knowledge by acquiring the right books, learned, listened, developed a strategy & equipped myself to harness my imagination. Some years of DJing at parties & clubs helped to augment my practical production insight & galvanize my skills. In time I found that a love of movies, music & production technology had run full circle. So after exploring different sounds while recording for Sect Records & Edify Recordings, under different monikers, a dark instinct reached out from my past, redirecting my skills to craft a dark sound.
‘I’m a storyteller & my stories must be told’… I attempt to apply a narrative aesthetic to mixing as I do composing. All material used in the mix has been selected to create a dark, cohesive, dreamlike experience referencing snapshots of my influences. I felt duty bound to include some Marcus Fjellström RiP out of respect to his memory & his immense musical talent. The tribal vibe of The Creatures’ sound happened to fit but I have a lifelong admiration for Siouxsie & the Banshees. I also included work of new acquaintances, Sana Obruent, Sim Hutchins as I dig their sound & they fitted this brief. The version of Marian I included is among my favorite Sisters’ [of Mercy] tracks & possibly the best rendition of that song, timeless as it is haunting. But everything I’ve used has its significance.
