I have been selected for PRS for Music’s exciting new scheme for composers, Accelerate. This will culminate in a performance on Thursday 22nd November 2018 given by the Berkeley Ensemble featuring works by all the composers on the project, with workshops and mentoring from John Woolrich along the way.
Some snippets from a couple of my recent pieces:
Locks of the Approaching Storm for eight players
Performed by members of the Philharmonia Orchestra (cond. Diego Masson) at the Royal Festival Hall, London, 23rd June 2016.
Cast (after Moholy-Nagy) for piano soloist and nine players
Performed by Jin Hyung Lim (piano) and the University of York Chamber Ensemble (cond. John Stringer)in the Sir Jack Lyons Concert Hall, York, 4th May 2016.
Uhtceare – a piece I wrote two years ago for York-based ensemble Dark Inventions – has been published by University of York Music Press and recorded on the Firewheel CD by the same ensemble.
The recording and the collection of published scores also feature pieces by the excellent Philip Cashian, Stef Conner, Benjamin Gait, Martin Scheuregger and Christopher Leedham.
