It has been 3 months since my last post, so thought I'd finally get round to updating it...
Since the last post I have finished the string quartet I was working on, which I am very happy with. The entire piece is about 15 minutes long, and I'm looking forward to hear it performed.
I have also had a performance by the Rednote Ensemble of a piece I wrote for Violin, Bassoon and Trombone, which took place in Edinburgh's Traverse Theatre, and I am now working on two more projects for Rednote Ensemble; piece for acoustic guitar, saxophone and cello, and a trio for 3 violins.
Both of these projects have had to be temporarily postponed though, because I found out yesterday that the deadline for the Craig Armstrong prize is in 2 weeks, and I haven't started it. The piece is for 5 amplified instruments (doubling) and sinfonietta-sized ensemble, and must be around 10 minutes. This will be quite a task to finish before the deadline on the 19th of March!!
I'll try to update this blog again once I've completed these projects!
