Meal One

In January/February 2022 I worked as Musical Director for 509Arts' first touring production of Meal One, based on the wonderfully absurd children's book written by Ivor Cutler in 1971, illustrated by Helen Oxenbury.

509Arts' adaptation was a magical family show filled with music, songs, dance, breathtaking projections and augmented reality surprises.

Like HUMBUG before it, this was a series of interactive adventure films for families.  However, this time, viewers were also able to search Bradford community parks for further clues in the form of QR codes, which could unlock an additional set of animated films.

Aladdin and the Stolen Stories was released online as part of Bradford Literature Festival on Monday 19th April 2021.

Leaver's Song Project

For three weeks in July 2020 I  worked with final year pupils at St Columba’s and St Joseph’s Catholic Primary Schools, Bradford, to write and compose their School Leaver’s Songs. 

Writer / Drama Teacher Sian Willams and I met Year Six teaching bubbles each week via video conferencing, to explore their memories of Primary School and their hopes and fears about the changes ahead.  The process was especially poignant under lockdown, with pupils already familiar with the experience of missing those close to them. 

The project gave the pupils a degree of outlet for their current situation, along with a unique musical record of this developmental milestone.
