Catalogue of Works

Lorem Ipsum
for microtonal piano

Composed: 2018

Written within a temperament constructed around a 7:4 harmonic seventh divided into eight equal parts.
Pitch Class Étude
for piano

Composed: 2016

This work treats pitch class as a basis for improvisation. The performer is instructed to realise each pitch class in whichever octave they see fit, using the strict rhythmic framework as a means of structure.
Triwise
for piano trio

Composed: 2019

An embellished isorhythm constructed around coprime numbers.
Two Préludes
for two microtonal pianos

Composed: 2017

Each Prélude is composed in its own temperament, 24TET and 19TET respectively. The work calls for four pianos to be individually tuned, however a digital version is avialable that only requires two MIDI pianos.
Triptych
for prepared and unprepared piano

Written by Francis Devine & Lewis Wolstanholme

Composed: 2016

This work was written for a performance by Francis Devine and myself. The structure of this work is split into three parts, the outer two being palindromic in form, whilst the central figure holds the most prominence, as is coherent with the practices used in fine art.
Lied
for soprano & piano

Composed: 2016

A setting of Einsamkeit by Rainer Maria Rilke.
The Sound of Wood, Metal & Felt
for one piano with three performers

Composed: 2015

This work is a timbral exploration of the piano, with one performer sat at the keyboard whilst the other two interact with the instrument internally. The score is semi-graphic, with instructions for every action that involves the piano itself.
Trio
for flute, clarinet & bass clarinet

Composed: 2015

This Trio is a combination of the total serialist composition style coupled with a rhythmic tala.
Snake Charming in Morocco

Composed: 2014
