Latest Project

I am currently (summer/autumn 2019) working on a piece for solo cello for the New York based cellist, Madeleine Shapiro.

Provisionally entitled Paths the new piece is based on the last months of poet Edward Thomas’ life as fictionalised by Robert Macfarlane in his book The Old Ways. It is a collaborative project in which cellist Madeleine Shapiro and I are working on how the many gramophone tracks inserted into Macfarlane’s account may be laid out as an open score. We will also be working on creating an electronic element against which the solo piece will be performed.
