2021 releases:

Hortulus Animae
Three of my own compositions/improvisations from the period 2015 – 2019 are now ready for release on Bandcamp. Hortulus Animae is a part of a project of images and music developed during my time in North Wales.

12 fantaisies à traversière sans basse
My version of Telemann’s 12 fantaisies à traversière sans basse marks my first classical repertoire disc, but I managed to bring the contemporary into the fold by including two of my own compositions; Preludes (sans mesure). Ulysses Arts will be releasing the recordings in Summer 2021 for download and streaming on all platforms.

Pilgrim of Curiosity
I also played a part in Oliver Searle’s disc Pilgrim of Curiosity as a guest musician with the Royal Scottish National Orchestra wind players. The disc will be released later in 2021 by Delphian.

More recordings of live solo and ensemble work can be found at my soundcloud page.

The album is full of taught, angular sounds, but its impact is more about compact intent than aggressive noise: more about poetic succinctness than outright inaccessibility.
