I am delighted that the Hebrides Ensemble will perform the world premiere of my string trio, Green Deva, at St Magnus Catherdral, Kirkwall, Orkney, for St Magnus International Festival. The concert will be recorded and made available online as part of the festival’s Midsummer Nights strand. I am very excited to be part of a programme that includes Judith Weir, Alasdair Nicolson, Sally Beamish, Maxwell Davies and Britten.

Tickets available here.

It was lovely to be included in Mark Kermode’s ‘highlights of the year’ Scala Radio show for International Women’s Day, alongside a great bunch of composers, with a cue from the documentary feature March for Dignity.

Night and Day short film

Mixing at The Farm

I have just completed the music for Tim Fywell’s short film, Night and Day, a story of two sisters and their very different experiences of the first Lockdown of Covid-19.

It was so wonderful to be able to attend the mix at The Farm, in person! Walking into a very quiet Soho felt like a dream and to sit in the same room as people I’d been working with was a treat.

The film is looking and sounding great and I’m looking forward to sharing news to come.
