The Thing

The video and audio of ‘The Thing’ for tuba and distortion, which was commissioned by the London Sinfonietta and premiered at the BFI in December 2014. The video was made in response to my piece by some excellent students at Central St Martins. I’m not quite sure how they got the audio…!

I’ve been commissioned by the London Sinfonietta to write a new piece for solo tuba and distortion pedal. My new work, The Thing, will be performed by David Powell alongside four other new solo works at the British Film Institute as part of ‘Alternative Visions’ on 10th December at 6.30pm. The new pieces will be played alongside new films by student artists from Central Saint St Martins. The other featured composers are Christopher Mayo, Luke Styles, Deborah Pritchard and Jacob Thompson-Bell. Booking info.
