December 2019: I am off to the Royal Northern College of Music this month to talk about musical ruination as part of the 19-20 Research Forum. I will be talking about my pieces JPR, Distant Beauties and Tänze as well as taking part in a performance of the latter with RNCM piano students and staff member Gavin Wayte. I will be reflecting on the three pieces’ relationship with the past and offering some thoughts on the aesthetic potency of the musical ruin. If you happen to be in the area on 4th December the talk is in the Forman Lecture Theatre, Royal Northern College of Music, starting at 4.15.
