I am currently working on a large scale, immersive work for String Ensemble, Electric Viola and Tape delivered over bone-conducting headphones, to be premiered at the National Maritime Museum on the 16th March 2019. The piece is called Melting, Shifting Liquid World and features different sonic interpretations of climate change data from ocean monitoring indicators. It will also incorporate a poem called “Still Life with Sea Pinks and High Tide” by Maura Dooley and field recordings from the Arctic, recorded by world renowned field recordist Chris Watson. You can check out the project diary here.
I was very pleased to be one of The Cohan Collective 2018 selected composers in residence, working with choreographers to explore the art of collaboration. The residency took place in Bournemouth in August, in partnership with Pavilion Dance South West and Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra with mentorship from composer Kenneth Hesketh.
