Rory's music is an eclectic blend of genres influenced by emotion, story and for the most part happy accidents. He started out as a young guitarist inspired by the pioneers of shred and slowly ventured into classical music, film music, experimental modernist music and even electronic music and sound design.
Despite his classical training, he believes music should come from a place of purity and freeness rather than rules and formulas with the majority of his work described as refined improvisations.
"Improvisation is the most important part of my writing process. I'll often improvise freely for hours on the piano or guitar before i stop to write anything down. I like to be fully immersed in the story and emotion of what I'm writing for and let my subconscious mind respond with improvised melodies and harmonies."
Rory has worked on numerous network televisions shows, short films, documentaries and feature films. Some of his most recent work was featured in Australia's highest rating television show with over 1 million viewers on average and has also been the recipient for screen music awards for his work on Cernunnos and Aracana.
