Late Night Klara

I was on Belgian Radio recently with a selection of pieces that I chose as being important to my musical development. A kind of "Desert Island Disks" but where you hear each piece throughout, and the show lasts for two hours...

Satie, Skempton, Glass, Dowland, Peter Gabriel, Kate Bush, Nic Jones, David Munrow, and a couple of my pieces chosen by the producer.

Listen again here:

It's a site-specific piece for the cathedral of trees in Milton Keynes, and uses a 100-strong cast of dancers, tuned percussion and trombones to create a unique promenade performance through the site.

Three-holed pipe

Here is the latest instrument from my workshop - a three-holed pipe in "d" made from locally grown sycamore. I will be making other keys later this year, and plan to make the tabors that go with them by next year. Please feel free to contact me for prices.

Under the Vaulted Sky

My latest commission for the brilliant choreographer Rosemary Lee is the music for a series of performances later this year to take place in the tree cathedral at Milton Keynes. This is my third collaboration with Rosemary and we have a beautiful space to fill with sound and movement. Very exciting!
