Joseph Young – “composing with sound”
As a sound designer and composer Joseph won the 1992 Carling London Fringe Award for his work on “The Ballad of the Limehouse Rat” by Tim Newton with whom he subsequently collaborated on a number of projects for Pop Up Theatre as well as the short film “Easy Target”. Recent composition work includes the soundtrack for a Friday Play for BBC Radio 4, “Full Blown” and the title theme and incidental music for a documentary series for ITV Meridian, “St Dunstans”.
His current work increasingly involves the use of field recording and manipulated soundscapes utilising Ableton Live and radial. He recently led a series of workshops for Sonic Arts Network on their Sonic Postcards project, and is currently composing soundscapes for a large scale community dance project for Spring 2006.
