I am composer of experimental music based in Glasgow. I’m interested in liminality, identity, silence, fragility, perception, approaches to listening, and non-standard notation. I am also interested in exploring notions of cross-cultural composition and acoustic ecology.
I am currently completing a practice research PhD in composition at the University of Glasgow, where I have taught on a number of courses including: Composition in the Classroom, Orchestration, Practical Instrumentation Scoring and Musicianship, and Musical Culture in the Long Nineteenth Century. I am particularly interested in attempting to decolonise Music within the context of Higher Education.
I am passionate about education and have delivered projects for Chamber Music Scotland, Sound Festival, and Scottish Young Composers Project.
I manage Sound Thought, a postgraduate-run series which aims to promote the practice and research of postgraduates, recent graduates, and emerging artists working in sound and music.
