of 2005 I wrote my first full length harp composition - Passage. It was later
for performance at the Sonic Boom festival of new music in
Vancouver. I've done a 2-part in-depth lookat Passage as part of my Harp Tuesday
YouTube series, along
with a music video.
In 2007 I finished and premiered Rhapsody,
was also later chosen to be performed at Sonic Boom.
In 2012 I wrote a piece for harp and double bass called Cotton Butterfly that I also
later adapted for cello.
More recent compositions include Poem
solo harp, Autumn
Labyrinth, and Forgotten
My 2013 CD Passage:
music for solo harp includes three of my compositions (Passage, Rhapsody, and Poem for solo harp).
I often think of composing as being somewhat akin to painting -
splashing different musical colours around (what fun!). I'm
particularly drawn to exploring harmonic structure.
You can currently buy the sheet music to many of my compositions at my online store.
Watch and listen!
