La Neige - Sei Shonagon (de "Les notes de l'oreiller") (2010)
pour choeur mixte et quatuor à cordes.
Translated into French, this is a fragment from The Pillow Book by the Japanese court lady Sei Shonagon
who lived in the tenth century. The Pillow Book is her diary, which she secretly kept under her pillow during her years in court, containing a collection
of lists, gossip, poetry and observations.
Premiered by Tempo 144 and Le Quatuor de Mirmande on June 25, 2011 in Eure. (Fr)
duration: approx. 6'.
Currently working on a work for saxophone quartet, requested by the Bron Saxophone Quartet.
My latest work is "Ritual text for the afterlife" for women's choir and tubular bells.
Ancient Greek goldplates with texts - recently found in graves - that were carried by the dead on their journey to afterlife.
In progress is a work of a much bigger scale: Blodeuwedd, a dance poem for narrator, singer/reciter, dancer and ensemble. The poem is by the Welsh poet Tony Conran.
Another recent work (2016) is
O me! O life! (Walt Whitman) for choir and string quintet.
