Before the Bar Opens
Before the Bar Opens is a podcast about what happens before the music starts.
I interview a bunch of people who make, use and love music. Composers, performers, teachers, a busker, a jingle writer, a musical fireworks champion, a music profiler, a festival logistics guy, a music therapist... You get the picture.
There's really only one question: how do these people make music happen?
Before the Bar Opens explores the relationship we have with music, and its transformative power to make us feel, think and do stuff.
Launching 19th October 2021. Find out more here.

The Title Track
The Title Track is about how the title of a piece of music affects the way you hear it.
How much does a title influence how someone anticipates music? How does a title shape our perception of a piece? And is the composer's intention ever truly heard by the audience?
The Title Track is a fascinating insight into how people feel about a piece of music before they've even heard a note.
