Bio

Wayne gained performance diplomas from Trinity College, London and the Royal College of Music. He then worked as double bassist and bass guitarist with The Central Band of the RAF for a number of years, a period which saw engagements with numerous orchestras, bands and jazz ensembles on a number of national and international tours. 

Wayne's professional conducting debut took place at St James, Piccadilly, London , with the Sinfonia Metropole, in a programme including works by Barber, Schoenberg and Stravinsky. 

Wayne then studied at Dartington College of Arts and the Universities of Exeter and Manchester. He studied composition with Christopher Best and Frank Denyer at Dartington, Philip Grange at Exeter and Kevin Malone at Manchester. 

After a short period of further freelance work following his studies, he took up post as Senior Lecturer in Music and Audio Art at the University of Central Lancashire. 

Wayne has had a very wide range of experience across a range of musical and interdisciplinary projects, including sound art, electro-acoustic and acousmatic works. He's keen to be involved in projects that are music, sound, sonic art, dance and performance art based, especially new, fresh and contemporary contexts. Wayne is  particularly interested in exploring art forms that blur the boundaries of existing genres. 

Wayne is an active member of IRCAM Forumnet. He has used the Max patches Omax and Spatialisateur extensively during live performances.

Wayne thrives under pressure; but then most musicians do.
