While with us Alex worked a lot in the theatre and studios, so it was natural for him to go on to study Sound Technology at LIPA. He is now working in London as a composer and sound designer for Theatre, Film and Television.
He recently worked with electro duo Underworld for Danny Boyle’s Frankenstein at the National Theatre staring Benedict Cumberbatch and Johnny Lee Miller. A regular contributor to the National, he was also composer for Hamlet directed by NT artistic director Sir Nicholas Hytner and Earthquakes in London directed by Rupert Goold. Both Hamlet and Frankenstein were broadcast live to cinemas globally as part of NT Live.
Other projects include Othello with Dominic West at the Sheffield Crucible, The Merchant of Venice with Patrick Stewart at the RSC’s brand new RST Theatre in Stratford-upon-Avon, as well as productions with the Royal Court, Donmar, Hampstead, Finborough and Bristol Old Vic.
His work for dance has included collaborating with Ballet Black at the Royal Opera House and In The Dust for 2Faced Dance’s UK tour.
Television and Film includes feature films NFA, TreQuarti, Secrets, as well as Made in England and I Won’t Go for Channel 4 (the latter working with fellow ex-Hurtwood student Georgina Hurcombe). He has also written for a number of television commercials.
Alex is based from his own recording studio in London.
