  • Suddenly Distract(fold)ed!

    5th Mar 2014
    I will be depping for the pianist of the group Distractfold in a concert and workshop next Monday and Tuesday at the University of Huddersfield. The concert will contain some fantastic new music by Pocknee, Lou, Vergara and Fitch. I am particularly enjoying rehearsing "Crocodiles" by Michelle Lou, a spectral piece with some great sounds and in which I get to use an ebow!
  • Piano Concert coming up!

    10th Feb 2014
    I'm starting to work towards performing solo concerts regularly including my own works. The first of these concerts is a warm up, with some standard repertoire (Beethoven's Waldstein and Moonlight Sonatas, Chopin's Fantasie-Impromptu in C#), Please come along and show your support!
  • Peyee Chen Demo Recording

    9th Feb 2014
    I had a really fun time last saturday recording a demo tape with soprano Peyee Chen, recorded by composer Aaron Cassidy. We recorded some of Berio's Folk Songs and Handel's Piangero. I'm very pleased with the results (with only a week's rehearsal!) so here are the recordings for your delectation:

  • Back to School!

    1st Feb 2014
    I have been appointed as the Bootham School Musician in Residence 2013/14. In the post I live at the school, am fed and given some pocket money. In exchange I take some composition lessons, give some sectional rehearsals for the chamber choir, help with the orchestra, take a couple of composition activities and generally be around. I've also written a piece for the chamber choir Membra Sumus Coporis which should be performed soon.

  • Opera North Workshop

    1st Jan 2014
    My orchestral piece R'lyeh was performed by the Opera North Orchestra under Justin Doyle as part of the DARE/Opera North New Composer's Forum. It was a fantastic workshop, was extremely useful and the orchestra did a great job. Here is a short video made during the workshop (mine was the difficult piece):

  • Workshop and Performance of R'lyeh!

    23rd Sep 2013
    My new orchestral piece R'lyeh has been accepted as one of the five pieces to be workshopped and informally performed by the Opera North Orchestra under Elgar Howarth as part of the Opera North/DARE New Composers Forum. The workshops will be at the end of november and there will be an informal performance for critics, publishers, conductors and composers. It's a great opportunity to find out whether my complicated score is going to be effective, and I'm looking forward to working with Howarth, who has a gigantic reputation in the classical community. Hurrah!
