Through 2016 I have been supported by an Open Space residency, which has proved vital in the development, rehearsing and recording of various of my solo projects. Huge thanks to Aldeburgh Music for this extraordinary opportunity: I could wax lyrical about Open Space until the cows come home!


Open Space offers bespoke support for innovative and ambitious artists for up to two years. Through a series of artist-led residencies, the scheme offers the flexibility to explore and create new works, try out new collaborations and experiment with new ways of working, away from the pressures of everyday life as a professional musician. This unique opportunity allows participants to become part of the Aldeburgh Music family, to experience Aldeburgh’s creative campus on a regular basis and to make use of our expertise and vast array of contacts.


During my residency I will have:

  • prepared the new 'Palimpsests' programme with Mark Knoop (which included a session working with Michael Finnissy on his new song cycle);
  • explored the idea of developing a unique physical vocabulary with director Ingrid von Wantoch Rekowski;
  • prepared Milton Babbitt's Philomel;
  • filmed Bernhard Lang's new song cycle The Cold Trip, part 2 with Mark Knoop; 
  • recorded Andrew Hamilton's To The People with percussionist Maxime Echardour, for future release on NMC;
  • prepared Rebecca Saunders's Skin;
  • prepared works by Gérard Pape and Patricia Alessandrini for a programme with flautist Richard Craig;
  • explored ideas and source material with Cassandra Miller for a new piece she will write for me later this year;
  • recorded Michael Finnissy's new Andersen-Liederkreis with Mark Knoop.
