A prize-winning composer and PhD Scholar with both a Master's and Bachelor's degree in Music, George boasts 7+ years as a freelance composer and published arranger, writing concert works, film and video-game soundtracks.
As a composer, he specialises in acoustic, orchestral music and the reproduction of this with MIDI. George won a 2018 Contemporary Piano Composition Competition for his cue Nocturne, which is a solo piano cue for the video-game Haunted Emotions. His work has also featured in film festivals and game exposés internationally, with his latest contribution to the game Forgotten Sea featuring at EGX 2019.
His PhD via composition research investigates the influence of context in different composition projects, such as the implications of a tight deadline and/or the importance of collaboration in the composition of a soundtrack for a game that is early in development. Throughout his PhD studies, George has also studied theory and philosophy surrounding creativity and how this relates theoretically and practically to the composition of music, which has profoundly impacted his capacity as a music maker.
As a teacher George has provided tutelage and lectures on MIDI orchestration as well as facets of academic studies, such as research preparation. In addition to this George has worked as an intervention tutor providing 1-1 lessons with students who are not in school due to behavioural or SEN reasons. In this line of work, the focus is on Maths and English, rarely Music and George is eager to teach more music in whatever format he can.
