I had a great time at the MISE-EN Music Festival in New York last week. Great to meet and talk with composers from all around the world and to hear their pieces and presentations. Pianist Dorothy Chan performed my Mr. Turquoise Synth (2017) brilliantly, alongside Mr. Turquoise Synth himself of course. We hope to find a way to work together again in the future. Thanks to Moon, Jordann and everyone at Ensemble Mise-En.
I’m excited to go out to New York tomorrow for the MISE-EN Festival 2018. Pianist Dorothy Chan will perform my Mr. Turquoise Synth as part of the 4pm concert on Saturday 30 June at the Taipei Cultural Center. Just packing up Mr. Turquoise Synth (and Mr. Turquoise Synth II); they are looking forward to their US debut…
I’m delighted that Mr. Turquoise Synth for piano and 1-bit synthesiser has been selected as one of 26 pieces to feature at the MISE-EN MUSIC FESTIVAL 2018 in New York. I loved going to the festival back in 2014 and am interested to hear how Mr Turquoise (designed by Blake Troise aka PROTODOME) gets on duetting with someone else than the dedicatee Yshani Perinpanayagam. More details to follow!

I’m really excited to be heading to New York tomorrow for the mise-en music festival 2014. This new festival will take place in Manhattan over the next few days and features the wonderful ensemble mise-en. They will be presenting a range of new music in collaboration with the Momenta Quartet, Ensemble Paramirabo, and more than 30 international composers, of which I am one! The works of these composers were selected from the festival’s call for scores, which yielded 862 submissions by 702 composers from 65 different countries. This will be my first time in New York. I can’t wait to work with the ensemble and spend some time in a city I’ve always wanted to go to!
