Electroacoustic – works made in the studio with sounds I found intriguing. I like to explore delicate, intimate sounds and find ways to give these more significance and greater energy. I’ve enjoyed working with:
Cactus sounds in κάκτος
Racquet sports, skateboards and bmx bikes in Skate ‘n’ Shuttle/Roll and Smash
Quills, pens, pencils and a variety of other sounds in The Sound of the Letters, the Voice of the Page
The mysterious sounds of radio static in Shortwave-Soundwave and Longwave-Soundwave
Resonant stone, metal and bamboo sounds in Inner Resonance
Interactive Works – works exploring how sounds projected by loudspeakers can relate to live interaction and performance:
Concert work for violin and electonics Shimmering
Concert work for clarinet quartet and electronics Fata Morgana
An interactive installation exploring broken bike bits Mechanical
Concert work for tuba and electronics exploring the relationship between the tuba and multi-channel electronics Breathing Space
Instrumental Works – I used to write lots of instrumental music, but the studio has become the home for most of my work. This is a piece I still like though.
For trombones and a tuba – Friction
Collaborations – Working collaboratively is a major part of my practice. Have enjoyed working with so many brilliant people. These are three projects that I have created.
