I am delighted to have been invited by Dominique Balaÿ to curate a programme for broadcast on WebSYNradio from 16th – 30th June 2016. Alongside a selection of my own works are compositions by Alistair MacDonald, Bethan Parkes, Luca Nasciuti and Mark Vernon – big thanks to them for contributing.
Aria for Breath and Glass (4’09) and Aria for Voice and Plastic (4’42) are a pair of studio compositions. The Arias were originally made for a Charles Rennie Mackintosh Festival concert held at the University of Glasgow. The compositions emerged as a material response to two gesso ‘Opera’ panels (Opera of the Winds, Opera of the Seas) created by Margaret MacDonald (Mackintosh), and drew further inspiration from the plastic debris crisis in the pacific ocean.
