Education

About me

Michael lives and works in London, having recently completed Doctoral study in composition under the supervision of Mark Bowden and Helen Grime at Royal Holloway, University of London. His work often takes inspiration from some natural force or man-made structure, and he has become fascinated by the intersection between the two. His work includes acoustic and electro-acoustic compositions. He is a graduate of both London Symphony Orchestra Panufnik (2014/5) and London Philharmonic Orchestra Leverhulme (2015/16) young composer schemes. Recent and forthcoming premieres include Celia’s Toyshop for the Riot Ensemble (February 2017), which will be released on the Coviello Classics label in summer 2017, Slipstream for Ruthless Jabiru (April 2017), commissioned as part of the Sound & Music Portfolio scheme, and In Cloud Light (May 2017) for alto flute and electronics, which will be premiered and recorded as part of Psappha ensemble’s Composing for scheme.

Earlier in his career he worked as a freelance music director in the theatre, including several productions for the Royal Shakespeare Company. His work is often inspired by natural forms or shapes, allowing the aesthetic direction and structure of a piece to be determined by a naturally occurring phenomenon or man-made structure. His output so far includes solo, chamber, orchestral and electro-acoustic works.
