Recent large commissions include: SATSYMPH’s on a theme of Hermes; an original work which fuses contemporary classical ensemble music and contemporary poetry in an entirely new and innovative way and has a truly unique method of delivery via smartphone apps. The music and words respond to location, to where the user is. It morphs, changes, according to what the user does. This is an entirely new music/poetry paradigm.
sturzstrom, a new choral work commissioned by Coastal Voices was part of an umbrella project that explored the Jurassic Coast with newly commissioned compositions. Linking music and earth sciences through the voice, the project aimed to stimulate coastal communities to examine the unique relationship with the geology and forces that shape their environment. Performances included the premiere, 300 feet underground in Beer Quarry Caves, Devon; Lighthouse Poole and the opening ceremony of the Olympic sailing events in Weymouth and Portland, Dorset in July 2012.
