Current and past projects
include Strange Rainbow, a live electroacoustic improvising duo with Scottish harp player Catriona McKay. We're planning more performances of The Last Post with trumpet player Tom Poulson and director Susan Worsfold commissioned by the St Magnus Festival and performed at the 2017 Edinburgh Fringe. I have also been working with Carrie Fertig, on pieces for glass percussion, electronics and live flame-working. Le Sirenuse (with percussionist Stu Brown and film maker Rob Page) was selected for the Royal Scottish Academy Open Exhibition 2015.
Other recent works include The Imagining of Things with Brass Art (video and audio installation) for Huddersfield Art Gallery, Mitaki(string quintet and live electronics) for the Scottish Ensemble, and Scintilla. You'll find more details on the Works page
