Broken Society Recording from YCM 2010 in Apeldoorn

Had a great week in Apeldoorn last week at the International Composers Meeting 2010 in The Netherlands.  This is a recording of my piece, ‘Broken Society’, played by orkest de ereprijs.

Shannon K. McKenzie came up with a fantastic response to the piece.  Many thanks to her for letting me post it here:

Only when you shed
Light on the dark
Can you see the darkness

We need to see the dark
To appreciate the light
Otherwise we remain blind

Blind to what’s broken
Unaware and unable
To mend what we can’t perceive

Some shine in the light
Others see it
Yet no one fixes it.

International Young Composers Meeting 2010 – Apeldoorn

I’m off to the International Composers Meeting in Apeldoorn in a few weeks which is pretty exciting!  I’ve written a new piece, Broken Society, especially for the meeting for ‘orkest de ereprijs’.  If anyone wants to come and lives in Holland then the concert featuring all fifteen works by young composers from around the world is on 19th February in Apeldoorn.  You can read more and get details on the ‘orkest de ereprijs’ website.
