Current projects I’m involved in.
The Conversation Hat Podcast
A comedy chat-show were a hat dictates what is discussed. Anything is up for discussion from the arts, to geek culture and films, to current affairs. Featuring guests from the local creative industries. Recent topics of converstion include the obsolesence of shoes, whether you’d rather be happy or smart, and the best animals to use as servants.
Liam co-hosts the show and also creates most if it’s music.
Listen on SoundCloud or iTunes.
Stabbed Panda Productions
A team of multi-media creators, currently producing music business content for YouTube, various music, and original comedy sketches.
Liam is production manager at Stabbed Panda.
Blue Alatar combines Liam’s interests in guitars, cinematic music, and electro synths and sound design. He is currently working on an album’s worth of material, with the working title Irradiated Hamster Alert, following a radioactive hamster named Gilbert as he attempts to overthrow a tyrannical Pandapoppolis.
In terms of inspirations: for the rock and metal side of things he enjoys Whitesnake (particularly Doug Aldrich, and John Sykes), Black Stone Cherry, or anything guitar-centric like Joe Satriani and Steve Vai; for the cinematic elements he draws from Bear McCreary, Ramin Djawdi and Hans Zimmer; and for the electronic aspects he listens to to Jojo Mayer & Nerve, Dan LeSac vs Scroobius Pip, Victory Pill, The Crystal Method and anything from Monstercat.
Waveform Animations & Sonification
Liam currently creates audi0-visual crossover works, many of which are uploaded to the Pop My Mind creative platform. Sonification is the process of turning visual material into a audio, or vice-versa, which Liam is using to create playable instuments out of art works, or cross-media renditions of visual works.
He also creates animated music videos for his own projects and for Stabbed Panda collaborator, MangoFlush.
Another outlet for Liam’s interest in electronic music. He particularly enjoys remixing modern soundtracks, and styles which you wouldn’t usually expect to be remixed… Death Metal, for example…
