Work in progress:
- HAYDN SPACE OPERA, a virtual reality environment created in Mozilla Hubs. Launched at Bath Spa University’s SparkFest digital festival 2021 and currently being presented at Electric Medway festival.
- WALKS, a series of collaborative video works created with Katie Hanning and Jon England (Kaths Kaff). WALKS 1-4 were released in June 2021, with WALKS 5-12 being commissioned by Electric Medway and released on 21 August 2021. A fourth set of videos is under development.
- Piano work for Zubin Kanga
- Impedimenta, collaboration with flautist Jenni Hogan
Obviously, the biggest ongoing project I have at the moment is my PhD, which questions the division of public and private creative spaces through interdisciplinary composition. More about this work turns up in the blog on this site and the composition vlog on my YouTube channel.
- Composition vlog – a fortnightly video blog tracking my work in progress (2017- )

Completed research projects
These two research projects were completed during my Master’s degree and both focus on developing the role of visual art within my composition practice.
- At the Borders of Music, Art and Text: Exploring an interdisciplinary approach to composition, composition research project (2013-14) focusing on music for voices including Drowning Songs, Crossing Dartmoor and the parksong series of experimental pieces/artworks.
- A Sketchbook of Mushrooms, composition research project based on Cy Twombly’s Natural History: Part I: Mushrooms exploring musical equivalents for visual arts techniques and the use of collage as a compositional tool. (2012-13)
