Seeing as there are no concerts right now I have been working on other things:
An album of new songs produced by Peter Lyons. It will be released by We Are Unique in the autumn.
A new composition for toy pianist Margaret Leng Tan.
A new Contrebrassens album, to be released later this year.
Arrangements for a game soundtrack composed by Jean-Louis Roubira (Dixit). News soon.
An album for actress and director Kloe Lang.
Films and things
Live sessions from Hollywood Hex
The most rewarding of the pieces for toys on the program. A fairground tune unfolded on the toy piano, a bittersweet interlude evoked loss, and a syncopated bluesy melody evolved in a melancholic haze.
The New York Times
Anne Brochet found a musical parallel. The melodies and sound inserts of Michael Wookey come in delicate attire in a film where intimacy and fantasy, reflection and playfulness are balanced. - Le Monde
A brilliant composer of lunatic cabaret songs.
LES INROCKUPTIBLES - JD Beauvallet
Cajun music and New Orleans jazz are never far. A whimsical, playful world with a few melancholic strokes and carnival-like frenzy.
Obsküre Magazine (Mai-Juin 2013)
A charming formula with plenty of unique arrangement ideas and the same kind of energy as in Patrick Watson's music.
France Musique - Vincent Théval - LABEL POP
From string-filled popsongs that could have been composed by Sufjan Stevens to sparkling folk ballads through to darker tones, these songs are flawless!
