Current projects I’m involved in.
Blue Alatar are an instrumental, studio-based cinematic rock band from Cambridge, UK. The project is led by guitarist-composer, Liam Taylor, and features collaborations from Si Pettit, (Subterrenean Popular), and a variety of experimental sounds and textures.
The band’s rock influences come from Whitesnake and Black Stone Cherry; whilst Ozric Tentacles are responsible for the various synth textures and arpeggio patches; the big percussion, orchestral elements and sound designs are inspired by cinema composers Hans Zimmer and Bear McCreary.
The band’s first album, Irradiated Hamster Alert, is coming out in September 2018. More info on BlueAlatar.com

Stabbed Panda Productions
A team of multi-media creators, currently producing music business content for YouTube, various music, and original comedy sketches.
Liam is creative director at Stabbed Panda.
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…
In 2018 Liam’s remix of Professor Elemental‘s Came A Long Way was featured on his E.P., Nervous.
