Huge thanks to Palliser Viols for performing the premiere of my work Lord Have Mercy, which was written specially for them.
I began experimenting with digital editing a short while ago. My habit was to take a selfie and then to develop it artistically often coincident with a composition that I was working on. I would like to share these digital artworks. For each score purchased I will include one, unique, signed digital 'selfie'. This will be one of only two copies to be produced; the other will be for my own personal records.
Absolutely delighted to announce that I won both the First Prize and the Audience Award at the New Zealand Double Reed Society Chamber Music Competition July 2018. Simply over the moon!
Really great to perform a narrator and piano version of Prokofiev's Peter and the Wolf today at a Wellington School.
I am currently working on a new composition for the viol consort Palliser Viols based in Wellington. Such wonderful instruments!
"Lord Have Mercy" in one movement 8 mins duration.
I am delighted to have accompanied well-known Wellington violinist Barry Driver in the New Zealand premiere of my Violin Sonatina No.1 for violin and piano on Sunday 27th August 2017. I would like to thank Barry for his input and knowledge of the violin, which has been very important and which has contributed to the music. And of course to his fine playing. The audience on the day found the piece, 'Strong', and 'Dynamic', especially the second movement, which contains an original Ukrainian folk-like tune.
New pictures, sound samples.
