Composer. Conductor. Curator

The everyday features prominently in my music. Quotidian sounds such as the flutter of tiny wings, the rumble of motors and the honks of geese are adapted into instrumental and vocal textures. My musical cartography explores a very direct relationship between music and the 'real world'.

My most recent work Frail Skies, performed by the London Symphony Orchestra, was hailed as 'an exceptional addition to the orchestral repertoire' (Bachtrack) and described as being 'a skillful tone poem' by The Sunday Times.

Also a conductor, I curate and direct collaborative events such as the Pierrot Project. For six years I have directed the Wilderness Orchestra, whose performances have included my orchestrations of Radiohead, Aphex Twin, Nina Simone and David Bowie.
