7TH SEP: Very excited that Golden Fur are getting back together to play a typically amazing program of pieces from all over the map. As part of the gig the will play my Nekkersdaal Eden, originally written for Decibel in 2012 between a warehouse in Perth and a library in Laeken. Details HERE

8TH SEP: Jessica Aszodi gives the Melbourne premiere of my piece written for her entitled Prayer for Nil.

2006: ARCHIVAL TWITCH FOOTAGE
Tuesday May 13th 2014, 7:04 am
Filed under: News

In 2003 I wrote a piece entitled Twitch for 5 of my friends, which briefly became an ensemble of the same name. The group went on to perform some very special concerts, including the Melbourne Festival and Gaudeamus Music Week, but none quite topped our very last one in 2006 at South Melbourne Town Hall, in which each member of the group wrote a piece for everyone else. Archival footage has surfaced, and has to be seen to be believed.
