Collaborating with Angus as a composer for our touring production of The Selfish Giant was a brilliant process. Angus was filled with positive and creative ideas and a joyful presence in the space throughout: from responding both in the space and remotely to ideas and stimulus to create the score, to supporting the musical understanding of the cast and creative team, right the way through to problem-solving and troubleshooting during the latter stages of the technical staging of the work. The soundtrack for the show is integral and truly magical, delighting audiences of all ages wherever it plays! A generous, creative, committed artist, who I look forward to working with again! Elvi Piper, Artistic Director, Wrongsemble.
Having Angus as musical director on our christmas production of The Jungle Book was a truly collaborative and creatively rewarding experience. He brought bags of creative ideas and was incredibly responsive to the work as it was developing in the rehearsal room.

Would not hesitate to recommend him in the highest terms’ Nina Hajiyianni, Director, Action Transport Theatre.

Angus scored a commercial for a luxury car company I directed. It had a quick turnaround so I needed someone who was flexible and able to make quick changes… Angus was able to do this and more. His can-do attitude was exactly what we needed and the final product was a perfect fit. I look forward to working with him in the future. Highly recommend him to others.

Angus is an amazing musician and composer who I’ve been working with on a production of Augustus and his Smile. He has an infectious enthusiasm and is flexible with ideas and suggestions, which is ideal in the devising process. With two children of his own, he has an excellent understanding of children’s theatre. He also works as a street theatre performer, which influences the way he works in the rehearsal room… and a pleasure to work with! Simone Lewis, Theatre maker and Actor.
