About

Lyndon started teaching at the University of Glamorgan in 2007, and is an HPL (Hourly Paid Lecturer) teaching radio, creative audio, film, and TV in the Faculty of Media, Culture and Journalism.

Lyndon is Artistic Director of Swansea International Festival.

In 2008 he left the BBC to start his own business, and now works in a wide range of fields, mainly classical music.

Lyndon was Opera Consultant on Cardiff Singer of the World 2015, and in 2016 worked with Ingrid Surgenor to select competitors for the 2017 BBC Cardiff Singer of the World competition.

Lyndon produces ‘Sunday Morning’ and ‘Jazz Now’ on behalf of Unique Productions for BBC Radio 3. In 2016 he also produced two music documentaries for BBC Radio 4: Black White and Beethoven, about BAME engagement with classical music in the UK today; and Laura Mvula’s Miles Davis.

Lyndon produces and directs live video webcasts and audio podcasts for numerous clients including Aldeburgh Festival, ‘CLoSer’ for City of London Sinfonia, podcasts (with Jonathan James) for Sinfini Music, ECM Records, Bath International Music Festival, London Sinfonietta, and the Norwegian Music Information Centre; and in 2010 produced and directed a film for the Bristol Festival of Ideas about the ‘Bristol Technique’ of open heart surgery.

He has also produced and directed live internet webcasts for many distinguished orchestras, including the Simon Bolivar Symphony Orchestra of Venezuela and their superstar conductor Gustavo Dudamel, and most recently for City of London Sinfonia.

Experience

Lyndon joined the BBC to work as a Studio Manager (that’s radio-speak for a radio sound operator) and then moved to Cardiff in 1996 to become a producer in the Music Department, BBC Wales, where he produced programmes for Radio 2, Radio 3, and Radio 4. For a number of years he was Senior Producer on Radio 3’s flagship ‘Composer of the Week’ series.

Lyndon has extensive experience in all aspects of radio production, making him particularly able to help students develop their production skills.

Since leaving the BBC Lyndon has also become a proficient camera director, DSLR operator, and Final Cut editor; and also has Apple accreditation as a Logic user.
