The upcoming year is already set to be one of my busiest years yet. I will begin 2016 in Portugal at the Estalgem Ponta del Sol residency in Madeira. I will be working alongside fellow new music and electronics enthusiasts. In addition to the upcoming residency, there are already a handful of premieres scheduled in March 2016 as part of Birmingham Conservatoire's Frontiers Festival.
Just Imagine - Commissioned by the Learning and Participation Department at the Birmingham Conservatoire, Just Imagine is being written for professional ensemble, student ensemble, and electronics. The work will be introduced by Julian Lloyd Webber and will premiere on March 7th at Symphony Hall in Birmingham and will receive at least one more additional performance in London in April.
Thoughts of Carolina - The first work to be written entirely while in the United Kingdom, Thoughts of Carolina was written for the London based group, Project Instrumental. The work takes inspiration from James Taylor's Carolina in My Mind, (also written while James Taylor lived in the United Kingdom).
Concerto for Recorder and String Quartet - A concerto for recorder and string quartet, this is a new work that will also premiere as part of the Frontiers Festival.
Two Preludes (For Holly) - Written in 2015 for pianist, and friend, Holly Roadfeldt, Two Preludes will premiere sometime in early 2016 as part of Holly's "Prelude Project".
Walking into the Sprinkler - A song cycle for soprano, clarinet, viola, and harp, this will be premiered in April 2016 at the Birmingham Conservatoire.
