One Mind:Two Bodies

Below is an excerpt from a 30 minute experimental live performance first shown at UCD in January 2014 entitled One Mind:Two Bodies. 

One Mind:Two Bodies explores contrasts of the human body through the use of dance, video and sound design. Heavily inspired by the work of Jenny Saville, The Quay Brothers and the body horror film genre, the performance was a great success.

This particular section features Choreography & Film by Alicia Whitehouse and Sound Design/Composition & Film by myself. 

 

Situations

Recently I have been working on an electroacoustic piece entitled ‘Situations’, which can be found in the ‘Release & Works’ section for free download. 

‘Situations’ was part of an experiment in which I set myself the task of creating a piece of electroacoustic music using granular & micro montage techniques using only samples of the human voice. 

These samples were collected via email, with one criteria, that the sender was to send a sample of themselves detailing their name and what they were currently doing (hence, ‘Situations’). 

The piece was influenced by the micro montage work of Horacio Vaggione and also the work of Trevor Wishart, who often works with the human voice to create electroacoustic music. 

Many thanks to Ben Steed, Robbie Hopkins & Jordan Berry for their vocal contributions.

Movements In Time

Movements In Time is an electroacoustic piece composed by Alex Millar. The piece was created purely from the human voice and features rich, deep textures and drones which create a truly immersive experience for the listener.

After its release, ‘Movements In Time’ was used as part of a University experimental live performance in June 2013, this featured choreography from dance student, Lis Whitehouse which can be seen in the video.

Film Score Complete!

I have finally completed the score for a short movie entitled ‘The Silence’. The score is now available to listen to thorough the ‘Release & Works’ Section. 

The film originally started life at the Edinburgh Fringe as a stage performance, and due to popularity of it, it was then translated into a short film. 

The score was a great personal achievement and the feedback I have received has been excellent.

I have recently been commissioned to score the music for a short film due to be premiered at a local cinema this month. I will hopefully have the film uploaded within the next week to preview.
