The Workers Union Ensemble are performing my new work Ripped Up for ensemble and live electronics as part of the University of Leeds lunchtime concert series at 1.05pm in Clotherworker’s Hall this Friday. I’m conducting my piece and Matt Kaner‘s Gauguin Sketches. Should be a good gig!
I had a brilliant day yesterday working with the Musarc choir at St. Stephen Walbrook Church. The choir commissioned three composers, Neil Luck, Tom Chant and myself to work with the choir on new pieces. I wrote a new piece ‘Interplay II’ for choir, piano and live electronics. The choir were a joy to work with and their director Cathy Heller Jones did an amazing job conducting my piece. A recording is already available thanks to Joseph Kohlmaier and while I think the electronics could perhaps be louder and further developed I think the piece as a whole is rather effective!
I am working on a new piece for choir, piano and live electronics which the Musarc choir will workshop and perform at St. Stephen Walbrook on 1st July. I’m really excited to be working with Musarc and in such a fantastic space! Please come either to be involved in the workshop or to the concert at 8.30pm.
I’m conducting a new piece, Rebuilding the Rubble, by Oliver Sellwood at Kingston University on 12th September at 7pm.
Anna Durance is also performing my work Interplay I for cor anglais and electronics at the concert.
Maybe see you there!
