Colin joined the “monk-hood” about 4 years ago and his music features a television theme bent.
Style of Music:
Capable in all genres but specialising in TV Themes.
Composer, Producer, Artist – How do you define yourself?
Awards and Professional Highlights?
How long working as professional?
What was your best professional experience?
Attending the dub for “The Guernica Children” at The Farm Studios in London, with a BAFTA award-winning dubbing engineer – first class! Then seeing and hearing it on the big screen when it toured the cinemas.
A few, mostly involving last minute, project-ruining decisions by Commissioning or Advertising Executives who have little understanding of the music production process. Grrr…
What instruments do you play?
Mainly piano/keyboards but also saxophones and a little guitar – not a ‘little’ guitar necessarily, any guitar will do! I played trombone as a child but I try to forget that and it still haunts my parents.
What do you think is the future of music and media as a business? An art?
Don’t get me started!
Who are your heroes?
A generous dose of alcohol ;o) No, not really, more like tea for me.
What’s a surprising, little known fact about you?
