aRT & animation
For as long as I've had a passion for music, I've felt I had a lot to learn from visual design, particularly architecture, animation, visual art and graphic design. The parallels between the craft of each of these fields and musical craft has been a consistent source of inspiration, and my artistic goal is to hone my use of musical metaphor in order to appreciate these connections more.
Visual art, graphic design, and animation in particular are close to my heart and I enjoy developing myself as an artist in addition to a composer, particularly when it involves collaboration with my musical peers; this has involved creating animation that accompanies music, creating album art, illustrations of musical concepts, and logos for festivals amongst other projects.
Currently , I'm working as a freelance animator and visual artist in addition to composing, so please send a message if you're interested in a commission!
