I'm a sound editor and sound designer working across different media and formats; film and television, experimental film, public sound art and, music. Regardless of what form the work takes, the characteristics that I always try to bring to the table are openness, simplicity, method, new ideas, and difference.
For the past five years I have worked predominantly as a film and television sound editor, where I see my role as one of resolving the technical and creative challenges of the audiovisual medium, and in helping to create compelling storytelling moments that people and audiences connect with and become immersed in. A few projects that I’ve worked on in the recent past include a short film, THE BICYCLE THIEF (2018), a television drama series KEEPING FAITH (2017, S4C/BBC) and an experimental film, DO NOT FEED THE PIGEONS (2017).
When working with other formats, I am intent probing themes and topics that interest me, and doing this with the means I have at my disposal; sound recording, editing and manipulation, playback and listening practices. I am a current BAFTA Crew participant and a 2017 recipient of the John Brabourne Award. Marie also sporadically writes and produces music. Last year I had the idea a platform that creates, collects, and disseminates ideas on sound practice. SOUNDS THAT MOVE is still very much a fledgling work in progress, but is home to the audio blog SOUND CASTLES, the weekly sound-focused newsletter, THE SOUND DESIGNER'S PLAYBOOK, and a guided sound walk series, SOUND WALKING. You can contact me to discuss any or all of the above, the blog, or something else completely random.
