"Music of supernatural poignance, melodic but otherworldly, narratively urgent but poetically impressionistic."
- The Guardian
I studied music at Cambridge University and privately with composer Raymond Yiu. While at university, I won the ‘young composer of the year’ award at The Edinburgh International Harp festival. My work has since been performed at the Barbican, LSO St Luke’s, Cheltenham Music Festival, Kilkenny Arts Festival, the Sónar music festival (Barcelona), and the Mona Bismarck American Center (Paris).
My piece Suspensions & Solutions (for viola da gamba and electronics) was broadcast live on BBC Radio 3 earlier this year and I recently wrote the music for a new production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream at The Courtyard Theatre, London. Other recent highlights include assisting Nico Muhly on his opera ‘Marnie’ at the ENO and working as Music Editor for his score for the BBC1 mini-series ‘Howards End’, which was shortlisted for a BAFTA for best original score.
I'm originally from Pembrokeshire, West Wales, and now live in London.
