As the Blahs’ Administrator, James oversees the smooth running of the company: from managing the office and coordinating meetings, to issuing contracts and ensuring legal compliance.
Originally from Woking, James has a musical background and holds a PhD in Music Composition from The University of York. Now based in Leeds, he combines making devised work – blurring music, theatre and movement – with a community-based teaching practice, covering composing to improvising to singing. He has performed (mostly on cello) across the country plus conducted new music at Tête-à-Tête Opera Festival and Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival. He also writes the music for podcast sitcom, Wooden Overcoats.
