Introduction

I am a contemporary classical music composer, currently based in Australia.

At the moment I am exploring the creative possibilities of writing music that expresses the emotion of joy. This has included thinking and writing about some fascinating questions, such as:  What is joy? and How it is possible for music to express emotion?

In terms of my compositional style, I am especially drawn to textures and ‘colours’, rhythmic energy and fluidity, playfulness, emotional expressivity, lyricism, ambiguous tonality, and expanded harmonies.

My initial inspiration tends to be an extra-musical source, such as a poem or an image. But as the music evolves, it tends to takes on ‘a life of its own’.
