Recent Work

Things have been hectic back in Hamilton. Lots going on with the various activities at Wintec School of Media Arts, plus a range of other fun projects! Looking forward to getting stuck into a couple of film scores, and a new collection of piano music.

Some of the more recent highlights are as follows:

Last night saw Ben Hoadley perform my “the effect of bundled sticks on sound” for bassoon and FX at the Auckland Art Gallery for the launch of the Auckland Art Gallery Foundation – a hugely fun Dada themed multisensory dinner (with food by Peter Gordon). Great to be able to present this piece in such an interesting environment!
