I am delighted to announce that my chapter ‘Beyond the Fixity Fallacy’ has been published in Sonic Art: Theories and Practices – a book Edited by Mine Dogantan-Dack and John Dack (published by CSP). The chapter started out life as a conference paper at MuSA in Karlsruhe, back in 2014, and was written up as a chapter some years later. I’m very grateful for the hard work of Mine and John in making this happen!
A preview of the book (which includes my chapter as a preview chapter) can be found: here!
I am delighted to announce that I have received another prize at SYNC, Russia, as Winner of Degree II (Electroacoustic Music) in Category B (professionals) SYNC2018. The prize is for my latest piece – Helix: Circle of Fifths – which was finished but a few months ago. I shall post an excerpt on here soon. I am delighted to share the prize with my long-standing friend and colleague, Felipe Otondo, and his piece Night Study 3.
I am delighted to have received my certificate from Beijing, following my Honourable Mention for Would be to Seek:
I am delighed to announce that Ténébrisme – my new solo CD on the empreintes DIGITALes label is now out, and available to buy. The CD was officially launched during L’espace du Son, Belgium, and received a subsequent UK launch during Sound Junction last weekend. Copies can be ordered here.
I am delighted to announce that my piece, Would be to Seek, received an honourable mention at Musicacoustica in Beijing. The event – one of the most important electroacoustic festivals in China – has been running for 20 years, and it is very exciting to have featured in their competition for the first time.
It was a huge pleasure to present a masterclass and two concerts at L’espace du Son this year. I enjoyed performing works by Suk Jun Kim, Adrian Moore, David Berezan and Dimitrios Saava during my Carte Blanche, and four of my own pieces during my concert portrait. The hall and the acousmonium were both stunning:
Once again, Annette Vande Gorne’s L’espace du Son turned out to be the highlight in my acousmatic calendar – her concerts are always outstanding, with so much attention paid to sound, light, and the audience. It was a great pleasure and an honour to serve on the jury for the international composition competition Metamorphoses.
