There have been a bunch of good reviews for Liz Kenny’s new Linn release ‘Ars Longa’ which includes my Extending from the inside. She’s also been performing the piece all over the place including at Aldeburgh Festival and in Cleveland. You can read some of the comments about my piece on my press page.
Video now online of the premiere of my Changing Up + for solo percussionist and large ensemble from the recent SHIFTS project at Turner Sims. Joley Cragg totally nailed the percussion as did the HARTLEY Loop Orchestra, which features students and staff from the University of Southampton Music Department.
Superstar theorbo player Liz Kenny has recorded my Extending from the inside (2014) for her new solo CD coming out on Linn Records this summer. She is doing a prestige tour to promote the disc taking in Cleveland Institute of Music, Aldeburgh Festival, Oxford Festival of the Arts and the Wigmore Hall.
Joe Cutler’s album ‘Elsewhereness‘ is just out. It includes Workers Union Ensemble (with me waving) recording of Joe’s For Frederic Lagnau, which we recorded in 2013. Really pleased with the recording and delighted to be on a NMC record – one ambition in life achieved!
Just uploaded some recordings of the premiere of The Virus Within: Hearing HIV from February. Videos to follow in April!
On 27 November Aisha Orazbayeva (violin), Alice Purton (‘cello) and Mark Knoop (piano) performed my Piano Trio (with whistles), which I wrote in 2014 as part of their concert at the University of Southampton Music Department professional concert series. I’m pleased to have uploaded to Youtube a video of their fantastic performance:
In February the incredible Ivo Neame (piano), Jasper Høiby (bass) and Jon Scott (drums) came to play a new version of my ‘Loop Concerto’ with the HARTLEY Loop Orchestra at Turner Sims. It was brilliant to work with the trio and University of Southampton students putting the project together and big thanks must go to the Music Department at the University and Turner Sims for backing it. A video has been made and is now up on youtube. One issue is that there is very little footage of Ivo as the camera footage corrupted…
Just uploaded a video of Ensemble Paramirabo‘s performance of my The Circus Animals’ Desertion from 7 November at Turner Sims in Southampton.
