Ed has worked as a composer and sound designer on a large number of productions, and, given his conducting background, particularly enjoys working with live actor-musicians. He also has a lot of experience working with actors with little musical training, helping them find the skills and confidence necessary for a semi-musical role.
Although classically trained originally, Ed writes in a vast variety of musical styles, and is highly technically experienced both as a musician and a sound designer, often working with top Production Sound Engineers to produce production-specific rig designs. As well as having worked in many leading theatres, he has a wide experience in site-specific work, and its inherent challenges.
