what’s going on

This site began life as an adjunct to the old Fox Edition website but is now the main source of information about my work and is regularly up-dated. There’s a list of everything published by the Fox Edition and a list of performances. There are also musings on works-in-progress and  information about my writing, including some articles that aren’t so easy to find. I also add recordings which I hope people may find interesting, the newest being Heather Roche giving  Headlong its first outing as a piece for E flat clarinet. Or you can watch her playing it here.

The last few months have also seen the premiere of Topophony, my work for orchestra with improvising soloist. Rhodri Davies gave the first performance on 3 May in the Glasgow Tectonics Festival with the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Ilan Volkov, and a clip from that performance is still on-line on the orchestra’s web-pages. A second performance is now scheduled for Cologne in January next year, Ilan Volkov conducting the WDR Symphony Orchestra, with Axel Dörner and Paul Lovens as soloists.

Anton Lukoszevieze’s wonderful new recordings of my cello music – arc, re:play, Susan’s Purple, The Dark Road and a multi-track version of The Feeling of Remembering – are available on 28 August as an Ergodos CD (ER18), and an LP too (with some collectable differences between the two). In September Karin de Fleyt will record the alto flute work from my stone.wind.rain.sun cycle for Metier, Irene Kurka will record ‘Showing and Telling’ from the Too Far cycle for Wandelweiser, and Tom McKinney will record a CD of all my music for guitar. Later in the year there will also be sessions for a new Metier CD with Elizabeth Hilliard singing vocal music by me, Linda Buckley, Grainne Mulvey and David Bremner.

On my desk? Two new pieces for voices, one for The Clerks to premiere in the Wellcome Collection on 27 September, the other for EXAUDI at the Wigmore Hall in December.
