New discs

In the last 4 months, several pieces have been published on disc.  It's always terrific to be included on other people's discs and so I thank all these wonderful ensembles and organisations for commissioning and / or recording these works:

Midnight SongsEnsemble Three (includes my major work as the title track for flugel, trombone and guitar)

Making SignsSyzygy Ensemble (includes Sunburnt Aftertones, one of my very early and favourite pieces)

SoarGondwana Chorale (includes 'Fool' and 'Angry' from Words of Wisdom)

KingfisherHalcyon (includes Follow Me Through The Shadow: text by Jen Storer).

These albums can all be found on the discs page here.

Recent Performances

Alison Morgan, soprano and co-director of Halcyon along with Josephine Allen, piano, performed the full cycle of The Domestic Sublime at Bellingen Festival in September. This work also was performed in Perth in August with Lisa Harper-Brown and David Wickham.

Midnight Songs (for flugel, trombone and guitar) has also received a few airings this year when Ensemble Three toured to Sydney International Brass Festival and China.  They have also performed it numerous times in Melbourne including Melbourne Conservatorium of Music Lunch-time Concert Series.  It's recorded and awaiting mastering!
