Hi!

Alastair Cameron picSo, what do I do? Well, a fair few things…

Musically, I am a composer, conductor, teacher, and play various instruments (to varying degrees of competence). I also narrate audiobooks, but that’s not really what this site is about, although it may crop up.

I am primarily a classical musician, having studied piano and clarinet from a young age, and then doing a music degree specialising in composing and conducting . Most of my compositions lean more towards the “classical” genre, but can incorporate elements of jazz, folk and pretty much anything else that takes my fancy. So, dotted around the site, you will find a mixture of different things.  I also teach classical piano at the Budapest British International School, and conduct the Gabrieli Choir.

My First Attempt at a Music Video

People are often pointing out that these days, you really need video in your portfolio. So, as I am also into such things – but as you will see, definitely not professionally – I thought I would have a go. Here is my first attempt at shooting a music video for my track “A Wild Night”

And, yes, you have no doubt noticed that I spent an inordinate amount of time just videoing a record player, but hey, I had fun and that’s what counts!

A Book About Syria

After reading this newspaper article I was inspired to write a song.

The Cure is Here

Alongside music, I also record audiobooks and voiceovers. One of my first jobs when I was starting out, was a sales pitch for a more than slightly ropey sounding binaural beats/meditation/brain training product. It wasn’t my finest hour, but as a newcomer I’d needed the income and couldn’t justify turning down the work. To partially assuage my guilt, I wrote this song about quacks and snake oil salesmen.

It’s Halloween

It’s that time of year so I thought a song was in order

It’s Christmas

A Little bit of festive silliness.
