I have been lecturing at the University of Huddersfield since 2004 where I am now Senior Lecturer and Course Leader in Popular Music Production. Prior to joining the UOH I taught music technology at Manchester College of Arts and Technology.
Professionally I have been involved in the music industry for the past 15 years. Initially I assisted and engineered in local studios in my home town of Derry Northern Ireland before turning to producing Drum and Bass as Austin M and then house music as The Shafunkers, Northern Grove and D-Track. I have many releases and remixes on a large number of labels. I studied Popular Music and Recording as an undergraduate and Compositiion as a postgraduate at the University of Salford.
A selecton of my discography
Additionally I have produced numerous remixes and co-productions.
I am currently working on my PhD which is investigating the use of distortion as a production tool in Electronic Dance Music.
Away from the university I play with and produce several bands in the rock/pop genre
I am interested in the use of distortion in electronic dance music, mixing, popular music production and remixing. I am currently researching the 1176 FET compressor as its use in popular music production. Further studies aim to investigate valve, VCA and Opto designs and will make up a substantial part of my PhD Thesis.
