Pound Residency

Pound Arts logo website

For the 2015/16 season I was the composer in residence at The Pound, Corsham. I really enjoyed developing work that was premiered at The Pound (or nearby in the case of Corsham Wind Band). The residency involved an amazing 7 concerts and gave me the space to collaborate with the wonderful musicians Juliet Fraser, Alex Wilson, Emma Welton, Corsham Wind Band and the Manon Quartet.
