Things I’m LovingJacob Collier is one of my very favourite musicians. Here he is explaining how harmony works in a very cool Wired series. Yuja Wang plays Mozart. Seriously stop what you’re doing and watch this. It has a twist and a half. A lecture by Larry Tribe. He was Obama’s professor. His visualisations of political theory are quite stunning. The Trickster’s Hat by my friend Nick Bantock is a ‘Mischievous Apprenticeship in Creativity’. A simply wonderful book to have on one’s desk. Self Journal – a brilliant system to keep on track and focus on the important things. Their bookmark notepad is a thing of genius too. I give these away all the time!
A Portrait – By Nathan AzopardiNathan Azopardi is an incredible photographer, magazine founder, father, son and friend. I met Nathan in Berlin during a C2 Spark event. There he took one of my absolute favorite photos that I almost always use as my headshot…although it’s of the back of my head…I think it’s my best side.

Spitfire Audio: Under The HoodI had the chance to sit down with the amazing team at Spitfire Audio, a British music technology company that specialises in sounds: sample libraries, virtual instruments and other useful software devices. I went DEEP with them about my composition and recording process for the emotionally charged Dark Night scene in DETROIT: Become Human. I also let them in on my favorite and signature compositional trade secrets!
