homepage_5 I am a composer living in Brighton. Through my music I hope to communicate the potential drama, mystery, excitement and sometimes humour of the whole musical process through rhythm, melody, harmony and form.I’ve written music for chamber ensembles, youth and adult choirs, orchestras and theatre groups. Commissions have included a wind quintet celebrating the reopening of Brighton Museum and Art Gallery, a piano duet for the 75th anniversary of Brighton and Hove Progressive Synagogue, and an unaccompanied choral work for the 20th anniversary of Brighton Chamber Choir.My travels have often been a source of inspiration for my music, including several trips to Africa, a trip to Palestine and to various European countries.At the moment I’m preparing a revision of my Portraits for Wind Quintet for the publishers Spartan Press, and adding the final touches to Mokora for Violin and Piano which will receive its first performance by Ellie Blackshaw and Rachel Fryer in late Autumn.You can listen to audio samples of my work here.
