    Listenpony on tour


    Mar 2018

    In May, Listenpony is going on tour to Manchester, Birmingham and London. We're taking our 16th programme, with performances from George Fu, La Vaghezza, Cinema, Aldous RH and Elena Tonra, and new music from Robin Richards, Daniel Fardon and Joanna Ward. I wrote a piece for George called A Lady at her Toilet, and I'll also be driving the minibus. Details and tickets here.

    Banff centre residency


    Feb 2018

    For the last 5 weeks, I have been a musician-in-residence at the fantastic Banff Centre. I have to thank the generosity of the Royal Academy of Music, Help Musicians UK and some private donors for allowing me to be there, it was a fantastic experience.

    I went there principally to work on the piece for 15 instruments I've written for the Royal Academy of Music Manson Ensemble and Oliver Knussen, which I've named Dances of Travel, but I also worked on some solo piano pieces, sketches for few chamber works and a whole load more. And I met and worked with some great musicians.

    I was a brilliant and surreal experience composing in a little room on the side of the mountain in Canadian winter (-47°C was the coldest...). up on my instagram soon.
