‘Then we fall’ and other announcements

I am currently working on the editing and mixing of a new album recorded/composed/improvised in real time in the Albany Street Studios by myself, Chris Lam Sam, Nick Granville, Rob Burns, and Robbie Craigie. The session was engineered by Mike Holland.

While working through those tracks I found this tune recorded at sound check while we waited for Nick to arrive down from Wellington. So while you wait for the new album, here is a groovy little taster.

 

Also recently released is a remix I did for a band called Cheshire Grimm. You can check that track out here:

 

And finally, it is my pleasure to announce that my piece “Frosted Air Suite” for flute and electronics was awarded the Philip Neill Memorial Prize for Composition for 2015. I am looking forward to hearing the piece premiered later this year!
