The Partch’s Bastards concert at the Utzon Room of the Sydney Opera House was a great success. Recordings of all pieces have now been made. A recording of my Clarini duet will be posted on this site soon.

Chronology Arts Recording

Recording Jane Duncun of Chronology Arts.

Last Friday I recorded members of Chronology Arts Ensemble playing material I am planning to use in the electronic music part of a composition I am writing for them. The finished piece will be performed in a concert towards the end of the year. Thanks to Jane Duncan (flute), Luke Spicer (viola) and Elenor Betts (cello) and Jared Underwood (sound engineer).

Sydney Opera House – Partch’s Bastards – Ensemble Offspring

I am currently composing a piece for this Ensemble Offspring concert, which will be held in the Utzon Room of the Sydney Opera House, September 2, 2011.

“The pioneering musical spirit of American maverick Harry Partch lives on in Ensemble Offspring’s nod to the master of microtonal scales and instrument building. Partch’s DIY approach to music-making has inspired a growing generation of musicians and instrument-builders around the world. Not satisfied with merely commissioning new works, Ensemble Offspring has commissioned the design of new musical instruments for this project, which are visually striking and sonically beautiful.”
