I’m posting this a little early because of Easter and because things will be very much back to full speed at work as of next week!
Here are some events in May that I’m involved with:
Organ and Electronics, Sounds New Festival, 2.30pm
The penultimate date of my Sound and Music Organ and Electronics Tour will be at Sounds New Festival in Canterbury. This will be an afternoon concert, with music for organ and live electronics by Alistair Zaldua, Tina Krekels and Jesse Ronneau, as well as impressive pieces by composers John Lely and Nick Williams.

I, Norton by Gino Robair, Sounds New Festival
1pm, St Gregory’s Centre for Music, Canterbury
This lunchtime concert as part of Sounds New Festival presents work that the Contemporary Music Ensemble that I direct at Canterbury Christ Church University have been preparing this term. They have worked with notation by composer and improviser Gino Robair has prepared as an open notation opera on the life of Emperor Norton.

Organ and Electronics, Barrow-in-Furness
St James Church, pre-concert talk 6.30pm/Concert 7.30pm
This is the final date of my Sound and Music Organ and Electronics Tour! This concert will be a celebration of the tour, with some of the most exciting music featured, a final opportunity to quiz some of the composers about writing for organ and live electronics. The concert is being supported by the wonderful Octopus Collective.

The Digital Score
The Digital Score project comes to London after a successful concert at the University of Sussex in April. This concert presents the work of researchers questioning the nature of the score and the boundaries between digital technology and music. I will perform a work for live score, live electronics and voice by composer Marcello Messina.
More details to follow.
