Exeter was the most intelligent onion in the universe in the first iteration of my science fiction series. Originally a brilliant scientist, his brain was stored in an onion, much like where an onion is stored where my brain should be.

Originally written for a slightly spurious company which was exploiting it’s relationship with the new Resident Evil game. I wrote this music for them originally… Then as they didn’t pay, it became widely available! Woohoo!

Exeter the telepathic onion was so awesome that I wrote several pieces of music for him, this was reminiscent to one of the pieces of music in Final Fantasy VIII. Can’t remember the name!

Gotta have a few gems buried deep down in the sci-fi madness. Perspex Angels is a beautiful little soundtrack. I chilled out to it whilst making a music video playing pieces of perspex.

One of the coolest pieces of music I ever wrote. I’m happy with very little that I made and this one takes the cake, slow, relaxed then it kicks in with power, lots of unusual sci fi sounds. It was originally for a song.

The mining ship slowly advanced through sol, it’s battered hull scarred from laser burns. After all their endeavors, they were finally safe… Ahead of them lay Earth…

The pressure was on, the fighters flew into the trench, laser blasts splashing off their shields. Blue leader exploded in a ball of flame in the rear left… That’s what he got for not leading Red…

This is the piece of music I wrote for my favorite hero of all time: Ellen Ripley. It’s music for the end, as she drifts away, the last surviving hero. Alien’s my favorite music and I can’t do orchestral.

AVAILABLE ON: Download

Exploration is slightly inspired by a large amount of the computer games I tend to play. I’m really fond of this theme as it sounds like something a better composer would write.

Glow is a powerful energy driven track, the kind of thing you listen to when you’re fighting for your life in deep space and flying backwards through asteroid fields with someone trying to kill you with a grappling hook.

Sometimes, you need to create that perfect life form with all the DNA of the Zee fighters, whatever they are. This heavily inspired track will make every Cell in your body vibrate. An eclectic mix of sounds.

This is the kind of music when you’re entering the final battle of the film. You’ve got lasers splashing space all around you, lights flash and your star ship twists out of control!

Well you expected it for a long time, I’m sure, there was something a little off about Sally, maybe it’s the tentacles growing out of her ears or the fact she ate the dog. 

AVAILABLE ON: Download, Bandcamp High Quality Wav

Slow… Intimidating… Thumping. Over time it’s growing. Imagine something of a hideous unstoppable alien nature growing in a petri-dish. Then in a test tube… Then a big see through cylinder full of cool bubbles.

Slowly, they moved through the asteroid belt. Low pitches, weird thrills. It’s amazing what you can find out in space. This track echoes around several intrinsic weirdnesses, innate only to the people who hear it.

Something seems a little off about Vega Prime, it’s almost like the wildlife is too friendly. As we fly through the tree tops, there is an eerie hint that something is very wrong here…

AVAILABLE ON: Download

We never expected Captain Gordon to come back. Somewhat inspired from the Dune soundtrack in certain places… It’s probably one of my best classic bits!

AVAILABLE ON: Download

We have a situation here… Whatever you do… Don’t come to the base. You have to turn back. There’s nothing that can be done, and we can’t allow this thing to get out!!!

AVAILABLE ON: Download

The military drum beat is merely the prelude of things to come… Then, before we know what’s happened, it’s in the star ship and it’s attacking the crew, Star Trek style with terrible unrealistic slaps.

Princess Quagmire looked out of the window across the frozen lakes of Arcturis. She hadn’t wanted to marry Prince Arbuthnut. It wasn’t that he was cruel or unkind… It was something about his name.

AVAILABLE ON: Download

Ok, this one is DEFINITELY inspired by some of the amazing music for Star Control II: The Ur Quan Masters! I absolutely loved that game. The music and the voice acting was incredible!

AVAILABLE ON: Download

Music for when you’re trapped on some sort of space base and you’re really not alone. In fact you know that something is there in the darkness… Watching you.

AVAILABLE ON: Download

This is the kind of music you play when you’re entering a dangerous atmosphere with pressure all around you, lightning screaming off the hull… That sort of thing!!!

Nothing beats the sheer terror of the unmentionable it that lurks in the darkness beyond space tearing at your mind from beyond sanity… Don’t look now. It’s behind you.

SuspenI don’t know what I was thinking when I wrote this piece. It sounds alright in places but it’s so tinny. I suppose it would work well with sound effects work and speaking. 

AVAILABLE ON: Download

Inspired greatly by ye olden Roger Corman classics, this piece is wonderfully trashtastic. Only the most dire nerds like myself will see anything positive in this piece!

AVAILABLE ON: Download

My first experience using arpeggiators. I really liked this piece. It made me feel really happy when I’d made it. Even to this day I can’t seem to replicate the piece… 

AVAILABLE ON: Download

Using cool dribbly sounds with nice air pads, the Starfighter is on the scene. This was pretty good for an old one. The track flows quite nicely and could be a sci fi theme. 

AVAILABLE ON: Download

This piece of music must have been inspried by some of the music to V, an oddly named but fantastic little series I used to really like. It’s one of the better earlier ones.

AVAILABLE ON: Download

Sometimes, when you’ve seen things that other people wouldn’t believe, there’s the subtle hint of space madness just below the surface. Yes you smile and get on with it… But something is wrong…

AVAILABLE ON: Download

This is one of those groovy ones which I believe was inspired by Spaceballs I think! It’s got that groovy orchestral hit flair of the past. Definitely music to play when you’re on the run and the ship’s gonna blow comedy style!

AVAILABLE ON: Download

If you’ve ever been to Blunderworld and ridden the Beastly Bimps there, you will have probably tasted the cheese of the Bimp. I don’t know what the hell I was thinking when I gave this song life. It’s pretty cool though.

The Galaxien is quite a strange piece, it’s very full with the sound. I wasn’t good at balancing back then, but it’s pretty decent. Some pulsing chords and it’s a bit chill… Like a Galaxien, ya know?

AVAILABLE ON: Download

I loved this track, I don’t know why, it reminded me of floating through an asteroid field. It was one of my better classic science fiction tracks. Give it a listen and let me know what you think!

AVAILABLE ON: Download

Inspired by the music of Final Fantasy VIII, Intensity is one of my better early tracks, it had a surprising amount of energy and dynamism. I hope you enjoy it and can use it for something!

AVAILABLE ON: Download

Mysterious piece with background chorus and orchestral strings. Slightly sad, ominous and science fictiony. A very unusual melody. Hints of menace within the layers…

AVAILABLE ON: Download

Very different to Captain’s Space Debris, mine was inspired by the game but not the music for the game. Hence it sounds nothing like it! I loved Space Debris and Captain’s music!

AVAILABLE ON: Download

This is another piece which had huge potential. I know it’s been used once or twice for things. It’s got quite a nice pulsing undercurrent which doesn’t dominate speech… Wait, is that some… Blode in there? 

AVAILABLE ON: Download

Hints of Doctor Who’s theme in this piece. I studied the Doctor Who theme a lot when I first started making music, and I really loved the pitch bending. Sadly the sound isn’t well balanced.

AVAILABLE ON: Download

An overwhelming soundtrack that’s just bursting with sound. Sadly I find that it drowns itself. It was made by me a long time ago before I knew anything about balancing sound… And I call myself a composer.

AVAILABLE ON: Download

The original theme I wrote to Chan Walrus. I still really like it. I suppose it goes on a little too long. I’m sure that it’d work with quite a few programs. It could be tidied up a bit… I suppose.

AVAILABLE ON: Download

A slightly repetetive and almost dancy track. This one sort of fit in with what I wrote it for, a story about a cybernetic clone of someone fusing and coming to life. 

AVAILABLE ON: Download

I had to make a Terminator style theme somewhere. It’s got a lot of cool machinery sounds in the background and I’m very proud of it. Sometimes I listen to a theme and think… Did I really write this? 

AVAILABLE ON: Download

Relaxation Dome was a piece of music I really liked when I was making it, and I’ve always had an odd fondness for it. It’s something about the delay. It was my first really experiment with delays.

AVAILABLE ON: Download

Someone else liked Relaxation Dome and made me rewrite it for a film. Well I say made… They only held a blaster to my back as I worked on it… Nah they was lovely. But it’s nice to get asked to do a redo of something this old!

AVAILABLE ON: Download

A quickly building but repetitive track wherein worry builds in our brave adventurers. There’s something wrong, slight tension becomes amplified with subtle sub sounds.

AVAILABLE ON: Download

Universal Stress revisited with a few alterattions thanks to a request I received for a strange film about a ghost on a spaceship. When I watched it… I thought it could have been slower.

AVAILABLE ON: Download

Slow and weird, this is one from the archives I’m not particularly proud of hence I’ve buried it here. It’s not too bad, but there are better themes out there!

AVAILABLE ON: Download

Slightly inspired by the music in Breath of Fire V, the second Sci-Fi theme is pretty simple, it’s an old track but it’s functional for games and short films for moments of drama.

AVAILABLE ON: Download

Mysterious piece with background chorus and orchestral strings. Slightly sad, ominous and science fictiony. A very unusual melody. Hints of menace within the layers…

AVAILABLE ON: Download

One of the better Sci Fi themes, this one is ACTUALLY good. I am proud of the slightly Bladerunner-esque sounds in it. It has a bit of emotion. This could actually be used in something good…

AVAILABLE ON: Download

Slow, ominous to start with almost. Then into a dreamy bell like dirge as the theme flows through you. Another of the themes inspired somewhat by music from Breath of Fire V.

AVAILABLE ON: Download

The longest sci fi theme I’ve written, based on a combination of music from Breath of Fire V and Final Fantasy 8. It’s not a bad piece of music, considering the time it was written in… A time of war and strife…

AVAILABLE ON: Download

Slow, ominous to start with almost. THen into a dreamy bell like dirge as the theme flows through you. Another of the themes inspired somewhat by music from Breath of Fire V.

AVAILABLE ON: Download

A pretty groovy little sci fi theme, could work quite well with a series about time travels. There are some slight hints of the sadness in the Blake’s 7 theme hidden in here.

AVAILABLE ON: Download

Put together with love and respect to the team of the Radiophonic Workshop, Sapphire Wine’s name is also a vague nod to Ray Bradbury. Lots of eeriness and unnatural sci fi goodness!

AVAILABLE ON: Download

A weird, unnatural piece I wrote for Siege which bleeds through you to the very fibres of your soul. It’s a little creepy and alienating, which I quite like. I hope you like it too!

AVAILABLE ON: Download

This has a lot of power and tension in it. Strong drums, bringing everything home. This music was definitely inspired by so many of the RPGs I’ve played over the year!

AVAILABLE ON: Download

Ominous and twinkly with a little hint of menace, this early track is quite saturated but it reminds me a little of Star Crash for some reason. I think I scored the trailer with this when I was practicing with it.

AVAILABLE ON: Download

With a slowly building background slightly similar in some ways to Kavinsky’s work, Paradox is somewhat reminiscent of Endgame. It’d make a pretty decent end credits piece. 

AVAILABLE ON: Download

Oh yes, I had to hide this one deep down in my list somewhere! This music was inspired by a lot of the work I listened to by Dominic Glynn. A combination of many different ideas, wrapped in sci fi madness!

AVAILABLE ON: Download

Written for a Doctor Who fan series, Lord of Time has some essential parts of the Doctor Who theme whilst being remarkably quite unique. Slow, dirge like and very slippy.

AVAILABLE ON: Download

Anyone who doesn’t like Keff McCulloch’s music for Doctor Who doesn’t understand true beauty. This piece was so heavily inspired by some of his masterpieces. Bite me haters, Keff’s awesome!

AVAILABLE ON: Download

This is more me having some fun than actual music for anything. I hope you enjoy the cool little battle sequence. Raaaarghs and voices all by your balding Walrus friend.

AVAILABLE ON: Download

I often wonder why the hell I give pieces of music names like this. There must be something fundamentally wrong with me. Still here you go, Haunty McVampirechick in all it’s short stingy gory.

AVAILABLE ON: Download

A war is brewing on the final frontier. Military power, and theremin in the background. The Epic Space Battle is an older piece of music and not one I’m proud of. But some people like it. I think.

AVAILABLE ON: Download

Originally written for a computer game called Naev the project on which I met one of my awesome buddies: Nikola Whallon. The music ended up not being used, but this was my Dvaered theme. 🙂

AVAILABLE ON: Download

Named after the great Delia Derbyshire this track is as close to making the kind of sounds the Radiophonic Workshop used to make. I’m really proud of it, even to this day!

AVAILABLE ON: Download

One of my greatest science fiction feats, this piece goes through many different thoughts, emotions and maybe even dreams. Not really good for films or games, it’s still a hell of a track to work out to! 

AVAILABLE ON: Download

With a slowly building background slightly similar in some ways to Kavinsky’s work, Paradox is somewhat reminiscent of Endgame. It’d make a pretty decent end credits piece. 

AVAILABLE ON: Download

More music I wrote for Naev, it’s got a great litttle theme, and a heck of a lot of wow, I really love this one and it’s probably the best one I composed for the game…

AVAILABLE ON: Download

I know, I know, my dyslexia got the better of me, like this track I’m a tired balding plotting waste of space… The track has a powerful driving pulse and a strong determined theme. Unlike me however.

AVAILABLE ON: Download

This is one of the early pieces that I wrote based on the end credits music for Bladerunner, cold, calculating and a little mechanical, it was an early track but a decent one.

AVAILABLE ON: Download

A dark electronic piece, simple but effective used to punctuate. It’s not a great masterpiece, but it’s effective for a variety of uncertain moods. Probably a 2/10. We all make some duds.

AVAILABLE ON: Download

Another piece I wrote to a Doctor Who Fan Film hehe I’ve helped on so many of these things. It was meant to be vaguely reminiscent of the Torchwood theme. I think I did an ok job.

AVAILABLE ON: Download

Written originally believe it or not for Sexquatch (I don’t believe it was used), one of Chris Seaver’s masterpieces, this piece ended up in a Doctor Who fan film featuring the stone angels… Who’d have thunk it?

This is a piece of music where the hero has lost it all. It’s almost like he’s spent hours trying to make this sci fi webpage populate with statements about the music… This is the music of my dreams being crushed… 

AVAILABLE ON: Download

I always wonder where Action theme I went. Quite powerful panning at the beginning. Probably big for epic scale, city scapes, planets, looking at space fleets readying for combat on the frontier.
