PressPausePlay Documentary

If you’re at all interested in how music, film, books and art are created and consumed (and have an hour and a half to spare) I really recommend watching this excellent documentary PressPausePlay from House Of Radon; it’s nothing to do with me but I found it a fascinating watch!

Some great interviews with Seth Godin, Bill Drummond, Hank Shocklee, Moby and many more. You can actually download the film completely for free directly from the filmmakers’ website and then donate whatever amount  you feel you should (and if you enjoy it, I urge you do).

YMCA Video Featuring My Music

A great new video from Christopher King at that features some of the music from my royalty free collections. The short film is an inspirational story about former pro boxer “terrifying” Tony Pollard and the help he received from the YMCA:

“Tony Pollard may have abandoned some of his healthy habits after quitting his pro boxing career 25 years ago, but he never forgot how to get back on his feet. He just needed the right place and the right support. The YMCA was all that.”


The music tracks featured are Spring Harvest, April Showers and  The Falling Snow from volumes 3 and 5 of my royalty free music collections:
