Auróra Musis Amíca
Wind Symphony / Concert Band

Commissioned by: Canberra Grammar School as part of the Centenary of Canberra 2013 and the Canberra International Music Festival.

An uplifting and inspiring piece for young adult/student musicians. The pieces opens with a soundscape reminiscent of the dawn bursting into colour over a still lake. It then unfolds into an uplifting and hopeful fanfare before fading back into a wash of colours for the final bars.

The piece includes some fun extended techniques, including bowed harp, bowed vibraphone and glockenspiel, flutter tonguing flutes, and some aleatoric moments for muted trumpets.

Blue Mountains
Symphony Orchestra

This orchestral piece is inspired by the incredible landscape and beauty of the Blue Mountains in New South Wales. The opening moments from the strings describe the first light touching the far reaches of the mountains. It eventually evolves into a soaring melody when the valleys and mountains are fully drenched in the warmth of the sun, and the full beauty and of the scenery becomes a sight to behold.

Etude in C# minor Op.2 No.1 (Scriabin) (arr.)
Symphony Orchestra

This is an orchestration of my favourite Etude by Scriabin. I have tried to keep the Russian Gypsy music feeling in the orchestration, but equally have felt it important to bring a lush orchestration style to the climax point and give close attention to the inner voices and textural opportunities available in an orchestra.

Elk Branches
Chamber Orchestra

Composed for the Australian Youth Orchestra 2014 National Music Camp.
The piece features a 4-note melodic motif, which weaves its way through a variety of instrumental colour combinations, textures and moods. The effervescent moments in this work explore the interaction of several small ensembles within the orchestra. The climax is a wild fanfare – described as ‘Nordic Triumph!’ in the score – inspired by the grand and wild forests of Scandinavia.

Light filters through the stillness of the forest,
Where the elk's antlers reach up into the dark, tangled branches...

Worlds Within Worlds
Chamber Orchestra

Composed for the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra as part of the Cybec 21st Century Australian Composers Program.

"All of nature in its awful vastness and incomprehensible complexity is in the end interrelated - worlds within worlds within worlds: the seen and the unseen. Every decision, every action mirrors, ripples, reflects and echoes throughout the whole of creation. The world is indeed bound with secret knots."
- Valentine Worth (Thomas P. Kelley)

Worlds within worlds is an exploration into perspective. The piece lurches into an energetic fanfare, depicting a bustling cityscape: a melodious metropolis made up of ever evolving monuments. The city's continuous construction is a march towards the clouds, referenced by relentless but optimistic driving rhythms and ostinato undercurrents symbolising the hustle of the city streets.
