Steve has been working in the theatre since 1985. Playing saxophones, flute, and percussion, the majority of his scores have been performed live on stage, with several forays into recorded sound. Back then Wildcat Theatre Company asked him to be part of a large band they were putting together for their show “Business in the Backyard”, and here he met Gerry Mulgrew, who commissioned him to write and perform the music for his award-winning company Communicado’s new production of “The Hunchback of Notre Dame”. This was the start of a long relationship with Communicado and Wildcat, leading to work with many other companies, including Benchtours Productions, Catherine Wheels, National Theatre of Scotland, Dundee Rep, Dance Base, Vision Mechanics, Traverse, Royal Lyceum, 7:84, Perth Theatre, Plan B, Cryptic, TNT, the Arches and Northern Stage. Details of several of these shows can be found on the other pages of this Theatre & Dance section, along with some recordings of his music.
