February 2017 - I've finally got round to editing and posting the video from my Noh project with Sound and Music/MU:Arts on the watch page of the site.
January 2017 - It's been a while... The first performance of Flowers aren't they?went very well and hopefully i should have a recording of the piece on the site soon. I'm also finally working hard on my piece for Rafal Luc and Ian Anderson (accordion and viola) which will be premiered at the St Magnus Festival, Orkney, in June 2017.
September 2016 - After a busy summer I've nearly finished my Hermes Experiment piece (Flowers aren't they?) which will be performed on 16th November. We had a wonderful workshop at the end of August and it should be a great concert... I've also started my new role as MD for the Rushmoor Choral Society - we'll be doing a concert of French choral music in November. And finally I've had my first few days in my new post as head of woodwind at Cranleigh School which will also involve composition teaching. It's been a tough first week but I'm really looking forward to the challenge.
June 2016 - The Noh project was a huge success and was a wonderful experience working with such wonderful musicians. I've added a short video about the project to the site here. I'm finally getting started on my Hermes Experiment/New Dots piece and am in rehearsal for a performance of And the bird by the water is turning white on September 16th.
April 2016 - Following the birth of my second child things have been busy but I've finished my portfolio piece - Ever Deeper Flood - (which is now in rehearsal) and it will be performed by some amazing musicians including Lore Lixenberg and Isso Yukihiro on the 14th May at Kings Place (see events). I'm now starting my piece for the Hermes Experiment... Also arranging a new performance of And the bird by the water is turning whitein the Autumn.
