I’m pleased to announce that I will be playing my recent acousmatic piece, “Penumbra” at the Electroacoustic Wales concert in Powis Hall, Bangor University on Wednesday 6th January 2016. The concert is part of the BFE/RMA Research Students’ Conference and this premiere will be performed in sixteen-channel surround sound. Concert starts at 8:00 pm.
I will playing “crunch!”, a recent work for multichannel audio, at the Electroacoustic Wales performance tomorrow night. The programme is entitled Dedans Dehors and features works Bernard Parmegiani and François Bayle, with new music from Alex Bailey, me, Andrew Lewis, Andrew Hooker, Louise Rossiter and Steven Tunnicliffe.

Jordan Cutler just uploaded an interview he and I did recently to his video podcast entitled “Glitching the Riff”. Topics include Audio Spray Gun, Weathersongs and Jazz. Click here to see the interview on YouTube.
This is episode three of Glitching the Riff. Other interviewees so far have been Tanya Goncalves and James O’Callaghan. Both worth watching.
Ellie Lighton and I will be playing my piece, “Exploration I” for flute and laptop as part of her recital in Powis Hall, Bangor University at 8:00 pm tomorrow night (20/11/15).
“November”, my one minute contribution to the 60×60 Surround Mix curated by Hans Tammen, is to be played (along with the other fifty-nine pieces) in New York on Sunday as part of the Vox Novus Festival. The Festival is a celebration of fifteen years of Vox Novus projects including Composer’s Voice, 60×60, Fifteen-Minutes-of-Fame, Circuit Bridges, and xMV. It’s great to be included in this.
The 60×60 Surround Sound Mix will be performed at Spectrum, 121 Ludlow, Second Floor, New York, New York 10002 on Sunday October 25, 2015 at 3:00 pm.
After releasing ASG 0.8.0 the other day, a number of people reported problems getting it to boot up. I think this update solves at least some issues. Please try it out and let me know if any problems continue.
Audio Spray Gun, my SuperCollider application for fixed-media composition is now available for download from sundaydance.
ASG simultaneously generates and spatialises large groups of sound-events from a single sound source by randomly creating points constrained by a locus or ‘particle zone’ within a multi-dimensional parameter space. When this locus is transformed over time, the program produces a sequence of events, which can then be rendered to multichannel audio.
Version 0.8.0 includes three-dimensional spatialisation and the option to store sound-groups as metadata for later modification. I’ll be giving a presentation on how it works at ICMC 2015 in Texas at the end of September.

My two pieces using the “Exploration” Max patch will be performed at 2:30 on 27th August 2015 as part of Flute Fest at Bangor University. Ellie Lighton will be playing flute for “Exploration I” and Hephzibah Leafe will play clarinet on “Exploration II”. I’m really looking forward to playing the two pieces together!
I will be playing “Only Now” in concert at Dance Limerick, John’s Square Limerick, Ireland on 12th August at 8:00 pm as part of ISSTC 2015.
