Music

I have a PhD, MMus, and BA (Hons) in Music, my skillset including composition, guitar performance, and studio production. Below are samples of my work.

Polytemporal Music (PhD Research)

My PhD (studied at Canterbury Christ Church University 2014-2020 under the supervision of Prof Matt Wright) focused on the composition and performance of music in multiple simultaneous tempi. My goal was to develop techniques to compose such music, execute it with human performers with complete temporal accuracy, and create a form of western notation which reflects its polytemporality.

The full thesis can be accessed here. All works are complete with part scores and accompanying digital media for repeat performances, and full scores have also been produced which display accurately the polytemporal nature of the works - an example of this is here. If you would like to see/know more, or perform any of these works, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Below I have selected a few of the most developed works, however if you would like to see the progression of the compositions please refer to this playlist. Presenting works in a spatial formation became a key part of my research, such as this performance of [in]dependence (this work also won the Peter Maxwell Davies Memorial Prize in 2019 as part of Canterbury Festival).
