New Piece for Crash Ensemble

I have recently completed a piece for Crash Ensemble’s 20th Birthday, as part of the Arts Council of Ireland’s Making Great Art Work Funding Scheme. This is due to be performed sometime in 2017. More details available here soon.

New Works for Modular & FM Synthesisers

Over the past year I have been working on notated music for me to perform on Modular and FM Synthesisers. These pieces can be performed solo and also in combination with any number of additional players in tandem with some conceptual poetry I am working on. I am hoping to record these pieces before the end of 2016. I will also be performing them in the UK and Ireland over the coming months.

In other news, I start back teaching at Birmingham Conservatoire next week. Looking forward to seeing all my colleagues and students again!

If you make it to any of the above gigs, please come and say hi!
