June 2020: NEWS AT LAST
It’s been a terribly long time, but there are lot’s of developments which I’m happy to share with you all, mostly to do with my residency with Nonclassical.
My track Mvnt (in blue) has been released on the Outside the lines vol. 3 EP. Have a listen here and check out the fantastic pieces by the other associate composers.
At the beginning of the year the brilliant COMA ensemble performed my piece Pathways for mixed ensemble. Hope to have a recording to show you soon! Check out the score here
March was meant to be the month where I curated an exciting gig mixing my love for jungle music with classical, jazz and theatre. Sadly the event was cancelled due to the Covid-19 outbreak, but me and the other artists involved hope to be able to present you all with some fresh new material soon. Please do check out the pages of the artists involved:
June 2019: NEXT STEPS
At long last an update from myself! I’m thrilled to announce that, since February of this year, I will be an associate composer with record label and new music org. NonClassical ! I will be appearing on one of their label releases, curating one of their events, and writing a few commissions for associated ensembles. Look out for more news.
Also, I’m pleased to announce that I’m the recipient of this year’s George Butterworth Prize for 2018’s Spirit Level! Have a watch below of the interview I did with Sound and Music, who awarded the prize.
NOV 2018: EXCITING DEVELOPMENTS!
September’s SPIRIT LEVEL was a success by all accounts: there was a 50 strong audience to witness the spectacle, followed by a well-attended, constructive feedback session. You can view the full performance on the ‘videos’ page.
I flew to CHICAGO!!! to hear Carl Alexander and cohorts from the Voice(ed) project perform my piece ‘Land of Hope and Glory’ for voice, harp, marimba and percussion. It was an absolute pleasure to meet everyone involved and hear the piece performed, and even better to hear all the positive comments!
Last but most certainly not least My piece ‘Continuo’ got played on BBC Radio 3!
