Pete lives in Bethnal Green with his dog Patti. His bedroom is submerged in the basement of his live work home on a traditional muse fronted East End street. He is a composer and also writes music for games.
WIYB: Pete, what does your bedroom mean to you?
Pete: Not sure really. It’s more of a studio with a bed in it.
WIYB: Do you like working from home?
Pete: I love it. But working from home can sometimes be a bad thing, like when ideas come to me in the middle of the night I have to get up. But on the other hand I haven’t got the rush hour commute to do everyday. Which is great.
WIYB: I like the partition. There are lots of good bits to look at on there.
Pete: Yeah, the Polaroid 600SE takes beautiful pictures but it weighs a tonne… and I found that old accordion in the bin outside. It doesn’t work, but the keys make an interesting sound.
WIYB: So if your bedroom were on fire what would you save?
Pete: The dog. And secondly my computer – it has all of my work on it.
