Welcome to SMUDGE MUSIC. Here you will find samples of the music I like to compose – or perform. The samples fall basically into three genres: Music for Film – this is my recent stuff and where I’m heading as a composer. Western Art Music – which is where I’ve come from. Scots Gaelic Folk Music – which has greatly influenced my musical style (along with American minimalism) and gives a sense of my musical roots. I’ve included a song text written in Australia by a Gaelic migrant around the 1930s. I composed the tune for it – and yes, that’s me singing as well.
I’ll regularly change the music selections on this page, so do stop by from time to time. If you are a film-maker, like what you hear, and need some music, get in touch. This is an area of my portfolio I’m keen to build.
