Really pleased to be able to announce that a recording of my piece bet giyorgis (for 12 players) is now available to buy/download here. Recorded (in my case) by Amsterdam’s illustrious Nieuw Ensemble and released by Huddersfield Contemporary Records, the disc, entitled ‘Zeta Potential’ includes a selection of pieces from the first five years of the 'European Composers’ Professional Development Programme’.
Tracks are available for individual download (bet giyorgis is track 3) here and are available for only 99p, which is cheaper than the paper/ink used to print my score! Would be really great to get a few downloads if you’ve got a pound coin to spare…
bet giyorgis turned out to be a really important piece for me in terms of my recent compositional development and interests, so it really is amazingly exciting to be able to have this particular piece preserved on disc in this way. The piece was my first serious attempt to look at ideas of decay and erosion as a compositional/aesthetic strategy and subjects cycles of materials to processes of gradual corruption and deterioration across the near twenty-minute span of the composition. Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival (HCMF), who have coordinated the project, have also written a little article about the release on their website, available here.
Really proud and privileged to have been a part of this groundbreaking international project - long may it continue!
