Bio

Writer/Director. I enjoy taking ancient Greek myths and turning them into modern sci-fi spooky versions. I also like to write romantic comedies, and people seem to go "Awww!" over them, so why not? My photo has been redrawn by a neural network.

Gorgonise Me

A Story Inspired by Medusa’s Sister and a Piece of Unplayable Piano Music To gorgonise. An old English word based on Greek. Means to have a paralysing effect on someone. Taken to the extreme, as I always do. Evryali is a music piece for solo piano that cannot physically be played, composed by Iannis Xenakis in 1973. That means the piano player has to choose which notes to play and which not to, resulting in a performance that transcends form and function. Evryali is also a Gorgon, (Yes, Medusa’s sister.) Noted for her petrifying gaze of course, but also for her bellowing cries. Contrary to Medusa who was a mortal that was cursed, Evryali was immortal.
