Upcoming Things!

The premiere of my new ballet score Annealed Cyan Malt will take place August 17-20th at the Judith Wright Centre as the dance work Refraction. Also in the program are works by Nigel Westlake, Carl Vine and Catherine Likhuta.




Recent Premieres

Two recent premieres I have had the pleasure of being involved in:

Most recently on the 20th of February, Diana Tolmie and I performed and recorded Thomas Green’s fantastic Sonata for Alto Saxophone and Piano, a very energetic work full of dramatic flair and rhythmic vitality. Hopefully a recording from the studio will soon become available.

The second premiere was the result of a collaboration between The Australian Voices and Collusion of my own piece:

O Gott! Ich Bin Nicht Sicher, von Deutsch Satzbau (2015) Op.21 – For SATB Choir, String Quartet and Piano


Quite a tongue-in-cheek work combining influences from the chorales of Bach, Grainger and various other eclectic sources. I aim to get around to producing a proper analysis of the work.

New Compositions!

New work for violin, cello, Bb Clarinet, Piano, Drums and Bass (with optional Morris Dancing) is finished! Entitled ‘Grande Sonata Brillante’

Finally after a year of intermittently working on it, my four movement string quartet is finished; ending up at 20 minutes duration! Looking forward to two scheduled performances of it later in 2014…

Also completed is another 5-minute mixed ensemble work entitled ‘Excalibrations’ for guitar, percussion, string quartet and piano.
