I’ve been wanting to sneak my way onto this scheme for years!
I was very happy, excited and surprised to hear that I’m one of three composers shortlisted for this years OPUS.
The others being Mark Bowler and Daniel McDermott, check them out.
I’ll be extending an initial sketch I’d made for the application process. This will be chewed up and spat out at a workshop in September with musicians from the Britten Sinfonia AND one of my favourite composers Nik Bärtsch, a composer that has had a huge impact on my music, a living breathing inspiration.
I’ll keep you posted…
