My new piece ‘The Dino Rescue Team’ will be performed by the Hackney CYM Red and Yellow Choirs, Oliver Senton (narrator), Mobius String Quartet, Caz Wolfson (percussion) and me (piano) in Shoreditch Church at 2pm this Saturday.  The piece was written as part of HMDT’s PRS Foundation Young Composers’ Scheme.  Tickets are free and it should be great!

‘Flight of Hope’ R&D

A few weeks ago I was delighted to work on the R&D work of ‘Flight of Hope’ with the Strike a Chord Theatre Company.  I was in charge of the recorded and live electronics for this show which explores some of the issues asylum seekers face in the UK and was directed by Rachel Warr.  Fingers crossed the company can get further funding and stage a full production soon.
