Terry Holmes Composer/Performer Award

This is a terribly delayed post, but a few months ago I received the Terry Holmes Composer/Performer Award with pianist Jin Hyung LimWe are currently working on a concerto for piano and ensemble that will be a response to László Moholy-Nagy’s wonderful rotating, metal-clanking, shadow-throwing sculpture Light-Space Modulator.

This will be my second time working with an ensemble under John Stringer‘s baton, now with University of York Chamber Orchestra. The piece will be performed in April 2016 (precise date tbc).
