Newsletter October: Fort Process and Modern Medieval

Panoramic Scores in Fort Process festival The Fort Process festival for Experimental Music in Fort Newhaven, UK, commissioned me for a new on-location panoramic score piece. And what a bizarre Dada-ist piece it turned out to be! The Newhaven Fort’s Caponier tunnel is a dark, damp, narrow space, with some incredible acoustics. The place begged for aContinue reading “Newsletter October: Fort Process and Modern Medieval”

ENDURING LIKE A TREE UNDER THE CURIOUS STARS #3

Johannes Ockenghem I was wondering which tunes were hot around 1420 when my friend Dan turned around and sang me ‘Prenez Sur Moi’ by Johannes Ockenghem. Since Dan is from around 14-15C but somehow landed in 2018, he must be reliable source! Ockenghem is a Flemish composer, sort of from around my native area andContinue reading “ENDURING LIKE A TREE UNDER THE CURIOUS STARS #3”

ENDURING LIKE A TREE UNDER THE CURIOUS STARS #2

The Llwyn Celyn buildings date from around 1420 and in an attempt to express this astonishing awareness of time passed I’ve written two works in modern medieval style. I’ve been using monophony in canon and found myself working pretty much in the same way while developing both very different commissions – that of the panoramic score and the choral pieces.

ENDURING LIKE A TREE UNDER THE CURIOUS STARS #1

Near Llanthony, Brecon Beacons .  Enduring Like A Tree Under The Curious Stars… is the final sentence of R.S. Thomas’ poem A Peasant, which I’ve included below.

Page Turners and how everything is connected

Here is a blog about one of my current works in progress. Most of my compositions are inter-connected and via sports, crafts and field recordings I’ve entered a sonic universe where all ingredients are formulated to such abstraction it becomes hard to recognise their origins. I thought it might be interesting to take you onContinue reading “Page Turners and how everything is connected”
