I’m a composer. I make up music.

Every so often, it’s  because I have an idea and simply need to do something about it.


Other times, I write music if someone asks me to, for a particular occasion or group, for a church service, or as incidental music for theatre. The more restrictions and requirements that are given, the more interesting the project.


Examples have included:


A piece for cello and piano (about barnacles) using only the open strings


A multi-movement work for chorus, brass and percussion setting the text of the 'Benedicite'


Three pieces for wind quintet with familiar tunes hidden in the music,

commisioned as a present for fellow musicians


A work for three string orchestras, each at a different level of ability,

incorporating Taiko drummers, to be performed in a cave in Cornwall


A four-movement work for eight solo voices, with a collage of texts taken from traditional

weather lore and folk sayings about the natural world
