Background

I started composing around 1987, leading up to and including the conclusion of my first university degree (Bachelor of Creative Arts (in Music)).

Originally, my compositions were recorded for University Media Department videos, some were candidates for radio ads... but often, I just composed for myself. My composer alias is now "FurryToes Music".

Equipment

My Old Bedroom Studio

All of the compositions on this page were arranged and/or composed and recorded by myself using various electronic and acoustic instruments and equipment.

Originally, I used an Atari computer with sequencer software called 'Notator' (an old EMagic Product now known as Logic) to mix and manage the individual parts.

But as technology has progressed, a Mac with Logic Pro gives me access to technology that might have cost around $50,000 in the 1990's.
