Perfor man ces& pro ject s

I am presently working on a large-scale piece for singing pianist who also plays percussion (written for Kate Ledger). It will form a scene from a music-theatre work (which includes HELL and The Digger Choruses) dealing with upsurges of utopian anarchist activity during revolutionary periods in history. The texts include William Blake, the 17th century English Diggers, the countercultural/street-theatre activist Diggers of 1960s San Francisco and graffiti from the evenements of Paris 1968.

Future projects include new works for two bass clarinets (for Heather Roche and Sarah Watts) and the acclaimed Dutch ensemble Electra.
