Currently looking at the nature of the arbitrary; writing compositions that primarily focus on the sound producing means rather than the sound itself, often utilising more and more fantastical methods to create sounds that are terribly ordinary. New writing: Close Eclogues on Tiptoe, SYZYGY (with Trevor Simmons), and Azimuth, is forthcoming.
