New works & Interview



2014 has premieres of new work by Ben Issacs, John Croft, Kristian Ireland and Richard Barrett in solo concerts in Edinburgh University, London City University as well as alongside the ensemble Distractfold in their concert season which spans from their Manchester hub to Poland and also France this coming year.  The group have also been invited to join the young ensembles program at the 47th International Music Courses in Darmstadt in 2014. A glut of live recordings have been just been released from various promoters, in particular my performance of ORDER by Esaias Järnegard with Pontus Langendorf at the 2013 Gaudeamus Week – you can experience this along with the score (!) here, and Dominik Karski’s Pre-Seed with SMASHAmp/Al has been played on P2 (Swedish Radio) and 2014 also sees me taking my experiments to the Noise Upstairs improvisation sessions in Manchester. An interview with me ahead of the sound festival appeared in the Glasgow Herald, thanks to Kate Molleson
