Works

I am a composer (and I even have an official piece of paper to prove it). Please, take a moment to discover my œuvre, my catalogue raisonné, AKA: my stuff to date. For now, it's pretty much just a glorified list, but I'll be expanding it over the coming weeks and months, offering notes, audio clips and downloadable scores.

    Non-lieux Ties

    Originally written to feature on a CD of works by a diverse range of Scottish composers from the baroque to the present day. Knowing that information before I started writing the piece was a blessing and a curse and I became unusually aware of lineage and heritage.

    Blind Corner

    Most people have an emotional blind side. Some people have a literal blind side. Some people have both. When I wrote this tune I had all those types of people in mind.

    Barbican Complex, 2008

    It's the Barbican Complex in London which gave impetus to this solo flute work. Rising from the ashes of a World War II bomb-site, there's an atmosphere about the 35-acre Barbican estate which is at once unsettling and tranquil.

    Old Photo

    That an old photograph can awaken such pathos, it catches me off-guard: a creased and evidently oft-handled photo of my great-uncle Ivor. An amateur pigeon fancier in his younger days, he stands grinning to the camera.
