Stage performance has been a fundamental part of my creative development. I’ve played book festivals, science festivals, horror festivals, music festivals, museums and art galleries, a reconditioned porn cinema and a great number of packed pub back rooms. I’m always open to gig offers.
My sets feature very short fiction and have developed to include original soundtracks I compose. The examples below are more experimental and disjointed than those you can expect to hear live.
If you are interested in spoken word with music, you might enjoy award-winning project, The Reader Remix. I also teach spoken word performance skills.
A flash fiction that didn’t quite work in its original form. I chopped it up and rearranged the parts to tell a subtly different story. With many bees.
This began as an experiment in randomised resequencing of story and music for cult radio station The Dark Outside. I allowed a little human intervention in order to make the most of this version.
A multi-voice project from lockdown with my performance mob Writers’ Bloc. Individual pieces were chopped up and collaged for eerie effect. The writers/voices in order are Rhiannon Grist, Ali Maloney, Josh Holton, me and Jane McKie.
The Seaside Poltergeist
One of the more understated tales in my collection Crap Ghosts. This version has no music; just a little added atmosphere.
