I am a UK-based composer and a Senior Lecturer in Music at the University of Surrey. This site will tell you about my compositional activities and the music I write (much of which can be heard on Soundcloud); for examples of my academic research and writing (both intimately connected to my compositional practice) please visit Academia.edu. Some of my scores are available to view in the British Music Collection. You can watch a roughly 50 minute video of me talking about my music here.
