Jackson Leonard J Mouldycliff

 Graduated BA(Hons) 1st Class, Music and Sound for Image

(University of Huddersfield)



Personal Profile


I am a composer, audiovisual artist and aspiring filmmaker with a background in Classical, Jazz and experimental electronic music. I compose music to be played by live ensembles and solo performers as well as realistic mockups using sophisticated orchestral sample libraries. However, my particular fascination lies in the creation of unique sonic textures and soundscapes, using a combination of ‘found sound’ and electronic processing mixed with both real and processed orchestral instruments.

Interests & Activities


I have a wide interest in music from different styles including Duke Ellington, Phillip Glass, Conlon Nancarrow, Moondog, The Buena Vista Social Club, Led Zeppelin and James Brown, amongst others. I also enjoy listening to live music and I regularly attend concerts performed by the Bolton Symphony Orchestra as well as the annual Jazz festival in Marsden. As an extension to this, I also enjoy performance-based art such as theatre, contemporary opera and art installations.


Alongside my interest in music, I enjoy engaging film and film analysis through the medium of online video essays. Some of my personal favourite directors include Sergio Leone, Akira Kurosawa, Andrei Tarkovsky, Christopher Nolan and Edgar Wright. 


I am also a keen swimmer and cyclist and have achieved both my Gold Swimming and Gold life-saving awards.
