Here’s an arrangement of mine for #KateMillerHeidke which she’s touring with great orchestras around Australia right now. ‘Elysian Fields’ is a gorgeous melody, a tricky arrangement to create with lots of extended effects for strings, played stunningly here by the #TasmanianSymphonyOrchestra.
It’s also out on her latest album The Best of Kate Miller-Heidke!

Delighted to share my arrangement of PURE IMAGINATION for #Aussie pop sensation #GuySebastian and Dreamworld Australia, thanks to the guys at Smith and Western Sound. Started with the original orchestration with Gene Wilder and re-adapted it to suit Guy’s voice as well as the amazing #Yugambeh Indigenous Choir.
Great to work on such a classic song with a distinctly #Aussie flavour. Here it is in a cool behind-the-scenes video

bleepy:

sindependent:

tag yourself as a major key i’m D♭ major and A major

i’ve always had characteristics in my mind for each major key and i don’t understand how this is so accurate to what was in my brain? like does every musician think of keys like this? because i always thought it was just me but these characteristics are pretty much exactly what i’ve always thought of each key??? i’m so amazed right now

Classic FM shared this on Facebook. I’m so pleased

Children’s Opera: The Grumpiest Boy In the World

My new children’s opera for Victorian Opera premiered recently and has been received wonderfully. The Grumpiest Boy in the World, story and libretto by Finegan Kruckemeyer, is an enchanting tale about a grumpy seven-year old. Fed up with being normal, Zachary Briddling travels to places where there are giants and hairy creatures, and learns that anyone can stand out, no matter how ordinary they believe they are. This is one of the unique ways Victorian Opera connect our community with the marvelous world of opera. It was a delight to collaborate with playwright Finegan Kruckemeyer and immense talents Cameron Menzies (director), Orchestra Victoria under the baton of Simon Bruckard, and Chloe Graves (set design).

Great Review of Dancing With Somebody

“Weirdly Beautiful … twist ignores the line between ‘classical music’ and ‘album’ with taste and energy. Let’s hear more!” My new album Dancing With Somebody has been reviewed in Australia’s premier publication for Classical Music, Limelight Magazine, and the review is wonderful. See the review here pictured below:

How Shall We Sing in a Strange Land Nominated for Art Music Award!

How Shall We Sing in a Strange Land for choir was nominated for Vocal/Choral Work of the Year in the 2015 Art Music Awards presented by APRA and the Australian Music Centre. “How Shall We Sing” reflects the cultural diversity, contradictions and mixed history of postcolonial Australia through the juxtaposition of sacred and secular texts. I’ve enjoyed hearing about performances of this work all around the world, including the amazing Winchester Cathedral in the UK, Adelaide Chamber Singers, Choir of St James King St, Sydney, and the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra Chorus. I’m extremely honored to be nominated with so many amazing musicians and composers and congratulations to all nominees and winners – including the amazing Sydney Children’s Choir and Gondwana Voices, who performed my “Rain Dream” at the awards presentation in Sydney (pictured).
