Delighted to have been included in this great project. Re-Place: remixes of Colin Riley's superb song-cycle In Place. If you follow the Soundcloud link you can find a whole collection of imaginative reinventions - 18 and counting.

I'm sure that I'm the same as a lot of people in currently finding it hard to be productive during this time, especially while looking after two young children. However, found an excellent resource for finding players who can record remotely, which means I'm still managing to get some new (and some slightly older) works recorded. It was set up by the award winning composer Nainita Desai, and you can find it here. A big thank you to Nainita for this great way to keep being productive, and also to give some paid work to musicians during the lockdown.

So I passed my viva in December with minor modifications. These are now finished and submitted, which means it's finally done: Portfolio of Compositions with Accompanying Commentary, exploring the use of consonance and dissonance in elements of music other than harmony. It's been fun, but I don't think I'd do it again. If you're curious enough to see what it was all about, you can download it here.
