BATTERIE will be supporting on these dates –
- Sydney – 13th March – Lazybones – Marrickville
- Newcastle – 14th March – THe Stage & Hunter Hotel.
Here is a video of the band playing live –
This is the first time an event like this has happened in Sydney (as far as I know). I was inspired by the supportive scene for gaming sub-culture in Melbourne at events I have played at in the past like ‘Square Sounds’ and wanted to be proactive and get something going in Sydney for indie game devs, and game music artists.This event will feature;
20+ Indie game developers showcasing their original games
5 diverse live music acts that are all game related
DJ Peret Mako (LA Noire sound designer) playing game inspired tunes
Industry talks and workshops
Retro console and arcade games to play
and BEER .. not just any beer. But a special run Gaming Label brew from principal sponsor Mountain Goat Beer
I’m looking forward to just being there, but also playing my live set as BATTERIE at 10pm on the 1st March 2019 at 107 Projects Redfern. Free entry. Full program of events and contributors to be announced soon.
Be there or be a disappointed square !
Looking forward to playing along side 3 other experimental acts this coming Wednesday 5th December at The Hideaway Bar in Enmore- Sydney. Last BATTERIE show for 2018.
Number 22 in the resurrected series of improvised, experimental or just plain weird yet beautiful music nights. Still blending the acoustic with the electric, the subtle with the bombastic.

How exciting to be featured in The Australian news paper !
If you were having lunch at a cafe or waiting for a flight, you might have flipped through The Australian and seen a story by national music writer Andrew McMillen about my experiences as a freelance game music composer. Andrew and I had a good chat recently at an APRA conference called The Melbourne Sessions where I presented a guest lecture on composing music for games.
Thanks to APRA AMCOS for inviting me to be part of their conference and thanks Andrew McMillen for being interested to interview me and write a story about my experiences composing music for indie games in Australia.
Here is a link to the story-
BATTERIE is looking forward to playing live at the Marrickville Festival 2018 on Sunday 21st October. BATTERIE on at 10am on ‘The Break’ stage.
Its an exciting free local festival featuring live music on 2 stages, food stalls, competitions, kids activities and more. .
I was recently invited to present my two hour guest lecture ‘Composing music for video games’ at The Sydney Conservatorium of Music (where I also graduated as a contemporary percussionist many years ago).
It was a real blast to be standing up in front of an audience of enthusiastic university students. I played them examples from 5 of the games I’ve composed the soundtracks for- including beta footage, early demos and UI sound effects. I also explained the production methods, composition and studio techniques I use when writing music for games and collaborating with indie game developers.
I’l be presenting this guest lecture again soon at SAE college Sydney and hopefully at some other Uni’s and Colleges in the future.
Please get in touch if you would be interested to have me come along as BATTERIE and present this multimedia talk at your Uni or College..
BATTERIE will be presenting a 90 minute masterclass on composing music for video games at The Melbourne Sessions. Presented by APRA Amcos.
Tickets are on sale for The Melbourne Sessions, a full day dedicated to songwriting and composing. I’ll be there leading a masterclass and talking about the creative process.
