653 days and other things

It was a busy but hugely rewarding weekend.
Two concerts.

It was excellent to work with a number of brilliant performers on these two events.

Here are some pictures of various things.

Some other information about the concerts: this article and also this interview:

There were a few pieces premiered this past weekend, and as I slowly sort through the recordings I will share some tracks… but in the meantime, here is one video that we premiered. Created by Ben Woollen, based on the track “Lingering Smoke and Watering Eyes” from the album ‘THUS’ by Days At Sea (Rob Burns, Robbie Craigie and myself).
Have a watch here:

Also, the NZTrio along with Sounz – Centre for New Zealand Music, APRA AMCOS and the Universities of NZ, have released individual videos of the performances from their Composition Competition concerts. Here is my piece:

And finally, I also managed to find time to work on a film score with John Egenes for “The Dairy Diaries” by Ashton Ledger. Here is the little theme tune:

Concerts, Albums and Scores

The end of last week got kind of manic with a range of projects reaching finishing points.

– sending scores, parts, backing tracks and other performance details for the performers of a new multimedia chamber work “Flutter”.

– submitting full score and parts for a new orchestral piece “convoluted” for the NZSO SOUNZ Recordings in February next year (alas I won’t get to hear it live because I will be in Nepal)

– A fun concert at the Dunedin Public Art Gallery. Audience relaxed on beanbags, a great big reverberant space, acoustic piano drenched in electronics – All good things. Here are a few pics from the concert.

PLUS! on the weekend we also released the Scorelocks Collective Album “A Collection of Cues – Vol.1”. It is available on bandcamp now!

Live in the Dunedin Public Art Gallery

I will be performing a live concert of ambient music for piano and electronics at the Dunedin Public Art Gallery on Saturday 25th October.

Along with the live performance there will be a number of sonic art installations I have created for you to become immersed in.
