Senior Lecturer in Music
My output includes instrumental, orchestral, vocal, digital, multimedia and text-based works. These are often conceived in close proximity to everyday places, situations and circumstances. My cycle of four multimedia operas (Beyond Belief) was commissioned in the wake of the Cumbrian foot and mouth crisis, and my multimedia opera (Steamsong) was created and performed during the run-up to the Scottish Independence Referendum. I've created new work in collaboration with dance and theatre practitioners, migrants and refugees, schoolchildren, marine scientists and high security prisoners.
