Alternative / Classical / Acoustic
I'm not going to write my conventional cello-life-story here(it's easy to find if you're interested!).The reason that i've got a profile on myspace is to get a few new people listening to my work and hopefully coming to a gig (or concert ,depending on how you look at it) because for me the live event is what it's all about.I'm thinking alot at the moment about how to get more people of my generation and younger into concerts and not just buying records and i'm passionate about trying to make this happen.I've tried clubs(great when they're quiet enough),art galleries and even tops of mountains, but i think the journey has just begun. I'll keep you up to date with how these experiments go and I'd really welcome any ideas you have.
I'm also on a mission to get new pieces written for cello alone and with friends from composers from all walks of life. I love working with living composers as well as long deceased ones- it can certainly be less lonely : ) - and it definitely keeps me inspired. So far I've commissioned a wild duet for cello and turntables, a solo sonata by Thomas Larcher and a piece called "Walking on Eggshells" by Fyfe Dangerfield. You can read more about this in my latest blog.
In the meantime , I hope you enjoy the music here.I didn't know which myspace box to tick ( am I alternative , classical, experimental?) and anyway I have never liked boxes very much. I put the Vocalise first as I think it's one of the most beautiful melodies ever written
