Here’s a link to an article I wrote recently for Sound And Music’s ‘Sampler’ Blog, about my time working with MusArc on a new choral work called ‘The Architect’. This piece, alongside other new commissions by Eloise Gynn and Clay Gold, will be performed on 20th Dec at Christ Church, Spitalfields, London. For tickets and info, click HERE.

Since I last posted about the project, ‘A Hidden Order’ has had the great pleasure to travel out to some wonderful places, including Abu Dhabi Art and Contemporary Istanbul with the Kashya Hildebrand Gallery, and a group show at the Seyhoun Gallery in LA. To finish off the year, some of our work is currently in Florida at SCOPE Miami Beach 2014 with Kashya Hildebrand. More info on this art fair here -
This has been a massively exciting year for us, since our debut show back in March. We’ll be returning with more shows (and hopefully some new works for your minds) in 2015, so keep your eyes on www.musicalforms.com
I’m mega excited to hear The Riot Ensemble’s Timothy Orpen and Kate Walter premiere a selection of my ‘Vignettes’, arranged for flute and clarinet, this October in Brighton. The works will be performed alongside a selection of other works by NMB composers, as well as Aaron Holloway-Nahum, Augusta Read Thomas, Helen Grimes, Luke Styles and Jorg Widmann The event will take place at the Friend’s Meeting House, Oct.14th, 7.30pm.

The ‘A Hidden Order’ exhibition at the Kashya Hildebrand gallery was launched last night with our multimedia live show, performed to a full house! We’re massively grateful to all who came down and shared the night with us, and to the musicians who made the magic happen. The show will be running from 10th September – 11th October, so make sure you pay us a visit over the month!
