It has been a rather busy summer so far, even on top of the usual frantic entanglement of marking and assessment that a university position demands. This is a little update as to my various research activities over the last two or three months, with some previews of upcoming projects.
It has been an extremely rewarding experience working with the deeply committed members of The House of Bedlam over the last couple of days. The group have been preparing my new piece, Meeting the Universe Halfway(2018, for instruments and apparatuses) ahead of its premiere on Wednesday [02.05.18] in Manchester. The full gig info is here. I thought I'd write something about the piece.
It's already the middle of a busy period for me, writing-wise - and it's not even the end of January! Two interesting projects are included amongst the melange, a new piece for Canadian percussionist Noam Bierstone and a major new piece for The House of Bedlam.
Last Friday [05.01.18], a few folks might have seen that I posted/twittered/facebooked-out something called MATTERS OF MATTER. A strategic move on my part, given I'd failed to previously introduce what the project was, or more precisely, is. Oops...
