The Latest

New Music!

Six Pieces for piano solo. These have just been published by Wirripang.

Some of my personal favourite short piano works. They’re approachable, a little strange, and fairly difficult.

Available here.

New album available

In 2012 I worked on a project for improvised saxophone with live electronics. In other words I played my horn through a bunch of effects pedals and created some fairly stark and unusual sounds.

This project was later accepted into the New Music Network Mini Series for 2012.

This one is free or donation.

Available here.

New Works Published

Wirripang has published three of my works! Print and digital scores for these works are available from their site.

Works include a set of piano miniatures called Eight Small Pieces for Piano Solo, a solo flute work called Sarabande, and a very difficult duet for tenor saxophone and drum titled Recitative, Dirge, Mania.

The Album

Album recording is finished!

I’m currently undertaking the painstaking process of mixing and mastering a new solo saxophone release. This will be available digitally, perhaps with the option for a special order hardcopy.

Really excited about this music – it’s quite raw playing, with an energy that I like. Also, doing the whole process myself is proving to be a great learning experience.
