Biography

Joe Gorman [b. 1996] is a historical keyboardist, and composer. Holding a Bachelor of Music and currently studying for a Bachelor of Music with Honours, Joe studies historical keyboards with Douglas Mews and composition with Michael Norris.

As a composer, he is currently working on a series of fantasias for various solo instruments, as well as works that use historical instruments [harpsichord, recorder and viol] and traditional Asian instruments. His work has been described as the intersection of early music practices with contemporary approaches to sound, colour and timbre.

Recent works include Fantasia IV [2018, Guitar, for Dylan Lardelli], Fantasia V [2017, Alto Flute, for Eric Lamb], Le onde luccicano sotto le stelle [2017, String Quartet, for NZSQ] and the orchestral work Kaleidoscopes [2017-18].
