George Barton (percussion) and Siwan Rhys (piano) shall be premiering my new piece 'Saida Portraits' written for New Dots in The Forge, Camden, London on 10th June. Excited already! You can read about my piece in a blog post I did for the New Dots website and check out my inspiration for the piece. You can also buy tickets for the concert on the website, hint hint!
