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.
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.
Selected cues from my score to March for Dignity, the feature documentary by John Eames, is available now to download or stream. Thanks to musicians Richard Curran, Leo Sutherfield and Sam Ewens and to score mixing and mastering Rich Aitken.
It was lovely to have another piece of my music played on Radio 3 Night Tracks the other evening – Tracing a Line from Cosima Spender’s documentary Phyllida. The show is available on BBC Sounds for a month and presenter Hannah Peel has also included the track in a Spotify playlist from the show. Tracing a Line features electronics, violin and prepared piano.
