Very pleased to have been given a British Composer Award last night for Microscopic Dances. I have been nominated before, but it is nice to finally win!
The judges said:
There is nothing microscopic about the ambition and impact of this courageous work. It has a distinctive, innovative flair, employing technology and notation for all abilities to actively participate in an uncompromising, contemporary and exciting piece for now. It’s genuinely inclusive and works flexibly, is finely crafted, compositionally strong with engaging, sophisticated writing and strong artistic integrity. It is ambitious for what’s possible, embracing external influences in a unique sound world.
