Two new CDs feature my music: the 2010 studio recording of TIDE, brilliantly played by Apartment House is out on Metier http://www.divine-art.com/CD/28532info.htm, and my short soprano solo Nakedness is on the new HCR CD by EXAUDI, sung by Juliet Fraser.
A big multimedia collaboration (60') with video artist Sam Belinfante for EXAUDI in 2014, and a new solo piece (10') for the German soprano Irene Kurka.
EXAUDI is having a slightly quieter season than 2012 but there is still a lot going on. Coming up is the launch of our HCR disc on 4th May - also including the premiere of the completed Instrumental Music by Matthew Shlomowitz - Rihm and Posadas with EIC in Paris and Cologne, and ten days at the IRCAM Academy in Paris at the end of June.
A new new-music ensemble for the North East, E7B launches in May with a programme including new works by Bryn Harrison and Gerald Barry. I'm conducting; Richard Rijnvos (now at Durham University) is Artistic Director. The launch concerts are in Huddersfield and The Sage Gateshead, on 18th and 19th May.
