THE QUEEN’S SUITE SCREENING CURATED BY THE ART OF HER On July 30th 2016 in the heart of London a very special film event called ‘The Art of Her’ took place.

New Music Biennial 2017 Commission: A Journey with the Giants of Jazz

Earlier this year I got the good news that I was one of twenty composers to have a commissioned project accepted for the PRS Foundation's New Music Biennial award in partnership with Hull City of Culture 2017.
