New work for Bang on a Can Summer Festival

This summer, I'm heading to the US to take part in the Bang on a Can Summer Festival as one of their composition fellows. It takes place at a huge contemporary art gallery called MASS MoCA where an international cohort of composers and performers come together for a three week-long residency. The Festival ends with LOUD Weekend - a jam-packed series of gigs featuring Meredith Monk, Tristan Perich, Marcos Balter - and I'll have a new piece premièred in amongst them.

The past couple of years have shown just how precarious working in the arts can be. Whilst things are back up and running, it's still very difficult to maintain a career as a freelance composer. From as little as £2.50 a month, you can help support the work that I do and get everything from bespoke playlists and blogs through to discounted releases and tickets to events in return!
