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!
I have just finished a mini-tour with the group I am fortunate enough to conduct Workers Union Ensemble. We performed at Turner Sims Concert Hall in Southampton, Birmingham Conservatoire and a final gig at LSO St. Luke’s in London. I can honestly say it has been totally brilliant to work with all in the ensemble and composers we commissioned on our ‘Constructing a Repertoire’ project. Can’t wait for future adventures!! For now here are some recordings from our Birmingham gig…

Markus Kinch from Film41 has made an excellent video of the recent Workers Union performance at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama.

Here’s a recording from the performance of my new work for ensemble and electronics ‘Ripped Up’ from the premiere by the Worker’s Union a few weeks ago.
