I recently bought myself a drone so I can get some nice atmospheric images for my music videos. Here’s a few simple test shots from up at Highdown Hill in Sussex, close to where I live. It’s only my 3rd flight so I’ve got a lot to learn but I can see myself getting some nice footage with it!
Music is my track Vapour Mining from the album Stateless.
Here’s a nice underwater video from Colin Snow at Koptervision featuring my instrumental music track Ocean Blue. You can license the track for use in your own films and videos here.
My music is currently being featured in photographer John Hailstone‘s photography exhibition entitled Exo Earth. The exhibition is at St. Peter’s Church in Wallingford, Oxfordshire and runs from 5th-7th and 11th-14th November from 11am until 5pm.

I was casually watching this documentary last night about one of my favourite musicians and producers Daniel Lanois
when I heard some of my music crop up in places in the background. I had no idea it had been used in it but I love it when that happens (I think it’s only happened once or twice before!)
