After a productive Summer of performances in Sweden, Spain and the premiere/recording of John Croft’s Seirênesthis Winter includes a trip to Helsinki to work with Mieko Kanno and Alex Harker. Thanks to an ERASMUS+ scholarship I will also be discussing my work in contemporary music at the University for the Arts, Helsinki. There is a return to Alba New Music in October to give a solo concert, and to HCMF with the Grizzana ensemble, to perform new works by Granberg and Frey, recording both compositions for Another Timbre.

Early in 2018, I will be running a workshop on improvisation and electronics as part of the Estalagem da Ponta do Sol Residency – any performers interested in participating should refer to the website linked, and are welcome to write to me for more information. The workshop will be focussed on how electronics shape an improvisation from a compositional perspective. As part of this workshop I will be discussing Rodrigo Constanzo‘s brilliant work with live electronics, and looking forward to working with him again on a new project.

Lastly, plans are afoot to tour Feldman’s Crippled Symmetry in 2018 with Philip Thomas and Damien Harron.
