About

I did intend to sit down and compose an orchestral epic. I really, really DID, honest. Could I help it that as soon as I made that decision, the saxes started up a 1920s tea dance in my computer?! Only it’s not all sweetness and light and good ol’ days, in fact it sometimes gets a little murky in there, to say the least…


Commissioned note

Commissioned by Yvette Audain, for her own concert 'Grooves Unspoken' (in association with the 2011 Auckland Fringe), with funding from door sales and bookings
