My piece Drip Feeder for piano and 1-bit synth has been selected by the ISCM British Section Board to be submitted to the International Jury for the ISCM 2024 in the Faroe Islands. Super honoured to be put up for this amongst a group of super talented composers.
We will tour Simon Steen Andersen’s On And Off And To And Fro (2008) for soprano saxophone, double bass, vibraphone and three players with megaphones alongside five new commissions. I will be on conducting duties as usual and will also pen a new piece for my Workers mates!
I’m delighted to be one of the 2014 Sound and Music British Music Collection ‘New Voices’. There is a rather lovely new website detailing the new cohort of composers:
We will write pieces for the orchestra over the coming year, which will be performed and recorded at Maida Vale in November 2013. We will also get the chance to try out some of our ideas in workshops early in 2013. This is obviously an amazing opportunity to take some risks and try some things out, and pretty special to be selected in such a competitive atmosphere!
