New video online! George Fu playing my "Lady at her Toilet", live at Listenpony in 2018.
Me and the other Listenpony composers were asked a while ago by Gramphone "what does it mean to be a composer today". Read our responses here
After recording string parts with the Ligeti Quartet earlier this week, and mixing a final draft on Tuesday, I've finished a piece called Ee well for the New Creatives North scheme, incorporating field recordings, new music for string quartet, and a load of illicitly recorded phone conversations with my parents. Online soon.
Looking forward to this great lineup - Joseph Havlat, Ligeti Quartet and Ana Silvera! I'll be writing a piece for Ligeti Quartet, and there'll also be music from Freya Waley-Cohen and Josephine Stephenson, and new pieces from Egidija Medekšaitė, Rūta Vitkauskaitė and Joseph Howard. Tickets here.
Excited to be a part of this scheme focussing on talent from the north! Am excited to be working on something different to my usual stuff: a work incorporating recorded voices, field recordings and instrumental music. Will be developing over the summer.
Happy to be writing a new piece for fantastic Contralto Jess Dandy for the next Listenpony concert! She'll be singing with Francesco Iannuzzelli playing on Oud. I'm writing a piece using words from Psalms 22 and 23 (v good ones). Check out the event here.
