    Dublin Project  -   25/02/2018

    Plans are forging ahead for our mini-arts festival in Dublin, in February 2019. The project will be called 'Aesynth'. The core dates for the festival will be 7-10 February 2019, but my accompanying exhibition will run for the whole month of February. The venue is the In-spire Galerie Dublin (56 Gardiner Street Lower, Dublin 1) and the outline programme so far includes two concerts given by the Lir String Quartet, a composer workshop, a round table discussion with musicologists, a sensory workshop and film screenings, together with my own solo show. The photo shows the members of the Lir quartet: Mairead Hickey, Siobhán Doyle (violins), Ed Creedon (viola) and Chris Ellis ('cello).

    'Messiaen and Synaesthesia'  -   29/10/2016

    The film that I made in January 2008 is still up on the website of the Philharmonia Orchestra and is now also on YouTube. Lasting about 5 minutes, it is introduced by Peter Hill, Messiaen's biographer. To see the film, click on the link below. The October podcast, of which the film forms the latter part, also features interviews with Sir Charles Mackerras and George Benjamin.
