Trio Atem give the world premiere of my new piece The Velvet Rage, for voice (with talkbox), bass flute and cello at St. Catherine's College, Oxford, part of the trio's 10th anniversary tour - more dates to come!
Following a successful interview last week, I am aghast to have been appointed as the new Senior Lecturer in Composition* at the University of Bath Spa, joining Prof. James Saunders and his uncannily creative department. My first day is April 18th 2017.
As part of their 30th anniversary celebrations, Australia's ever-impressive ELISION Ensemble - in collaboration with the RMIT Gallery - have made this beautiful video of my piece [Terrains], performed by its dedicatee, trumpet virtuoso Tristram Williams - of whom I am in awe.
Renowned Australian trumpet-virtuoso Tristram Williams premiered my new piece for solo quartertone flugelhorn (with preparations) in Melbourne a couple of weeks ago - and I've uploaded an excerpt from this first performance to soundcloud. Fasten your seatbelts - Tristram is really nailing this extremely tricky piece. I thought the time might therefore be right to pen a few words about the piece and what led me to its composition.
