This month I am guest editing Sound and Music’s ‘The Sampler’. I have written a blog, edited a playlist, and commissioned content from Hafdis Bjarnadottir and Enrico Bertelli. Go to https://thesampler.org to see more this month’s musical offerings!
I am preparing to visit London this Friday, 15th November, to hear the South Iceland Chamber Choir perform my new work ‘Islands’ in Southwark Cathedral. The concert will also include many pieces by Icelandic composers (a few of whom are pictured above). The finale of the concert will be a UK-premiere of Tavener’s ‘Three Shakespeare Sonnets’, which will be a truly beautiful experience indeed.
So that’s it. This week heralds the completion of my piece Digital Dust! It will be performed on February 17th 2012 at BBC Maida Vale Studios. It has been a fantastic experience to be part of Sound and Music’s ‘Embedded’ scheme over the last year. I will post a copy of the recording, as soon as I am allowed, on my Music page. In the meantime, there are examples from previous workshops if you’d like to have a listen…
