This visually striking and ambitious production situated Marlowe's celebrated play in the soviet union. I worked closely with the director to create cold atmosphere in which everything was a potential threat.
I combined three musical palettes; orchestral strings and brass injected cinematic high-stakes whilst evoking traditional royal music, heavily automated synth lines created a shifting sense of unease with promises of espionage, and bell-based drone scapes became increasingly prominent with Edward's eroding sanity.

For this dance show themed on light, the music, lighting and dance were intricately linked. Music was spatialized in '12.3 surround': an octophonic cube array, four specials, and a sub for each of the three seating areas. Whilst most of the music was predetermined and augmented by surround sound, I was asked to compose the music for 'Glitch' - a duet in which a couple become increasingly separated by the technological world. The story and visuals were integral to the music; an initially spacious and analogue piano theme becomes swallowed by abrasive electronics.
