Yshani Perinpanayagam will play my Mr. Turquoise Synth (2017) in Nottingham on 19 January alongside pieces by Blake Troise and Cheryl Frances-Hoad at her performance and talk at a new festival, ALL YOUR BASS, set up by the National Videogame Arcade.
On Monday 8 May at Turner Sims the fantastic Yshani Perinpanayagam will play my newest piece, Mr. Turquoise Synth, as part of her Piano Play: Power Up programme. The concert, which is part of the University of Southampton Music Department Professional lunchtime concert series, also features works by Cheryl Frances-Hoad and Southampton PhD composer Blake Troise (aka PROTODOME). Each of the pieces engages in some way with the sounds and tech of retro-gaming.

Here’s a short video of my piece from the rehearsal at Kammer Klang on Tuesday:

I’m pleased to be part of a roundtable/performance session at the upcoming Ludo Musicology conference, Ludo2017, at Bath Spa University. I will be part of a roundtable session (21st April) chaired by James Saunders featuring Blake Troise (aka Protodome) and pianist Yshani Perinpanayagam. We will be talking about the ‘Piano Play: Power Up’ project and Yshani will premiere new works by Blake and me. My piece, Mr Turquoise Synth, features Yshani performing alongside a little (turquoise) 1-bit synth built by Blake.
