Well, quite a reasonable amount has changed since my last post! I am no longer living in Glasgow, I have moved to Surrey - south of London - where I will hopefully be continuing my education this year.
I have continued to compose works for the Rednote Ensemble, and have just finished two pieces for 3 violins, which I have submit for their concert on the 24th of May in Edinburgh's Traverse Theatre.
I have also recently completed a short piece for string orchestra, which will be…

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…

Grains of Sand on an Imaginery Beach

Grains of Sand on an Imaginary Beach

I have been recently contemplating an interesting theory that has been presented to me, resulting in a chain of after-thoughts leading to this thesis. I will firstly explain this theory, then continue through the series of after-thoughts which lead to my final observation.

During a recent debate, it was suggested that as space is thought to be infinite, there may theoretically be an infinite number of planets. With an infinite number of… Continue

Well, it has been a few months since my last update, so there have been a lot of changes during this time!

The projects on the previous post have been postponed, due to shorter deadlines on other items. Inplace of these, I have been working on a series of works for small ensemble, and a string quartet; both of which are being written for concert.

30 September 2009

I officially started back at RSAMD yesterday, and had a composers' meeting at 2pm to discuss projects for this year. It looks like this is going to be a very busy (but exciting) year; I've been assigned 4 new projects on top of the 2 I already had.

I recently completed my sequenza for solo oboe, but still have the piano quintet and piece for solo viola to finish.

I have finished designing the structure of the piano quintet, and have completed 3 of the 5 sections, which I am very happy… Continue

16 September 2009

Haven't updated this blog for a while, by the looks of things. So many projects have been completed/cancelled in that time! At the moment, working on a piece for piano and string quartet, solo viola and solo oboe. These 3 projects are due to be completed by September 28th!

The piano quintet is possibly the largest project I've worked on; consisting of 5 movements, it will be approximately 30 minutes long. This is the primary project that I have been working on over the summer… Continue
