Composer

Score - Shirley Avenue

A lot of my time is spent composing and arranging for various projects. I have been commissioned by the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra, Opera Australia, the Queensland Music Festival, The Australian National Academy of Music, and by various other organisations. My work for the concert stage includes orchestral and chamber music, a song cycle and works for the AAO. I have written three major stage works, and am working on a fourth at the moment. These larger scale compositions have allowed me to integrate various influences coming from many different kinds of music and musical cultures.
