SFR – Home Hub (£2 billion of value)

SFR Stargate from Native on Vimeo.

Whilst Natives Lead Creative Technologist I worked for SFR, Frances leading telephone, mobile and broadband provider (part of Vivendi the group). The projects I was involved in ranged from the research, design and build of their next generation set-top box featuring plenty of ground-breaking entertainment and home-orientated technologies accessed via an advanced HTML5 UI. The majority of my work was based on the User Interface and User Experience side and involved numerous tasks including Prototyping UIs, investigating technologies, recruiting the necessary IOS, Android and HTML5 developers and regularly visiting France to discuss and present the progress with the client SFR. In addition i was also responsible for evaluating and improving their range of cloud based business SAS services.

Drahcir Xam :: The Rocker

This is the last track I made before I started concentrating on code rather than notes, which was probably for the best for everyone! Its over ten years old and counting. Made with Cubase and clicked in with a mouse, it’s a rocky little number with an uplifting end. As per usual its more of an idea than a fully finished track as trying(!) to make music was always a hobby, not a career! But that said, surely its better out there on the internet than gathering dust on some old hard-drive at home. So what are you waiting for…. just click the play button below to play the mix, or select other options like adding comments, posting to Twitter or Facebook or downloading the file as mp3 for use on your PC, Mac, Mobile or preferred audio player. Enjoy!
