I’m thrilled to be performing – and having my works performed – at the 2013 Australasian Saxophone and Clarinet Conference in Sydney. Over the last few months I’ve worked hard to whip up a whopping total of 45 minutes of original music to be premiered by a number of incredible musicians throughout the conference. Check out these recitals if you’re in Sydney in July:
Fulcrum duo – Samrukia (for two baritone saxes)
Diana Tolmie – Shapeshifter (Bass clarinet and playback)
QLD Con Sax Orchestra – The Shaman
Andrew Ball (solo) – Grimoire of Machines (saxes and playback)
Barega sax quartet – Deus Ex Machinist
I was commissioned recently to write for talented Melbourne saxophonists Ali Fyffe and Matthew Hinchliffe. They’ll be premiering my new sax quartet ‘Antikythera Mechanism’ alongside other innovative new works in August. Please check out their Pozible campaign to stream the performance live – embracing technology to expand and broaden the audience of this new music! Brilliant!
If you’re in Brisbane on the 20th June – make sure to check out the Turnaround jazz club for a new works gig with the Enthusiastic Musicians Orchestra. Featuring some of my (rather challenging) big band music in a program of new Australian compositions performed by an ensemble of fantastic Brisbane musicians.
And more exciting projects are well on their way for the rest of the year – stay tuned for updates…
