I am a composer, videographer, and performer who is based in Hampshire, UK. My music primarily aims to create immersive sound worlds, frequently inspired by nature, and is often meditative with a static harmonic quality. I enjoy integrating visuals, text and electronics into my work, and I experiment with performer agency to create music that flows naturally and sounds as organic as the nature I often take inspiration from. The visuals I create are heavily intertwined with the music and are equally important in the piece as the music.
I recently completed an MMus in Composition at Royal Birmingham Conservatoire under Joe Cutler, Amber Priestley, and Ed Bennett, and previously studied with Robert Fokkens and Pedro Faria Gomes at Cardiff University, and Charlotte Bray in Berlin. I have composed for a variety of professional and student ensembles including Birmingham Contemporary Music Group, Fidelio Trio, Millennial Percussion, Thallein Ensemble, and Avazad Fusion Ensemble, who have all workshopped and recorded my works. I was also recently selected to be a part of Psappha’s Composing for Piano Scheme 2021-22, where I worked with Benjamin Powell to create a new work for solo piano.
In 2021, I was part of the METABow research project at Birmingham City University where I worked alongside composer Daniel Blanco Albert, violinist Maja Pluta, and researchers Tychonas Michailidis and Roberto Alonso to develop pieces for violin and interactive bow (a bow containing sensors which can recognise gestures to control electronics). The first stage of the project was presented at CODA Festival 2021.
