Recorded during lockdown in 2020. I'm the hairy chap. Each performer recorded their part at home, and I combined them, using Ardour for the mixdown, ffmpeg for various processing tasks and kdenlive for the video edit. This is Paul Smith's setting of Nunc Dimittis.
A snippet of Il Bianco E Dolce Cigno (The Sweet, White Swan) by Arcadelt, one of the madrigals featured in our Love, Loss and Longing program. I recorded the audio at our Tugun performance in Queensland, July 2018.
A recording and preview clip I put together for our REST Programme, an hour-long meditative exploration of some of the most soul-touching music ever written:
The audio is a live recording of a performance in Tugun, Queensland in July 2018. I am performing the tenor part.
Our little group singing Are They Wearing Corsets?, a parody by Alison Mackay on Mozart's Ave Verum Corpus.
This song was written as part of the assessment tasks for MUSI221 - Songwriting for Contemporary Performance, part of my Bachelor of Music degree at UNE. This is a live take without any edits, and I use a looper (sooperlooper on linux) to replay the chords during the solo (the ending of the loop was a bit rough).
This live recording is from an in-house concert I held on May 18th 2017 as part of my University assessment for MUSI121 - Foundation Studies in Musical Performance.

I use Open Source, GPL'd software for all my Audio and Video projects (and, well just about everything else, too). Here's a quick summary of what I'm using right now for Audio production and performance.
The first of my two audition pieces for entry to UNE's Bachelor of music. Still soooo much room for improvement but it got me through :-)
Lasciatemi morire is from Claudio Monteverdi's opera L'Arianna. It is Ariadne's lament at being abandoned by her love on the island of Naxos.
Huge thanks to Jason Barry-Smith who got me to this stage with a sum total of three singing lessons in my life!

The Foggy, Foggy Dew is a traditional English folk song, this being the version created and popularised by Benjamin Britten. It is a somewhat cheeky tale of a love from years ago complete with thinly-veiled justification for following one's heart.
