Dead EarthRecorded in my living room 20/04/2020. Guitar, Voice, Mugs, Cups and Cans all performed by the composer Dead Earth takes influence from the imagery in Konstantin's play in The Seagull, playing on ideas of a play inside a play one might say! The text is from the play (in a play) itself and draws the atmosphere and colour of our planet far into the future devoid of all life: Something so alien yet a frightening reality in the face of climate change.

DistortionDistortion noun: distortion; plural noun: distortions 1. the action of distorting or the state of being distorted. 2. the action of giving a misleading account or impression. 3. change in the form of an electrical signal or sound wave during processing. This piece was commissioned by the Manchester University Music Society and performed on the 17 February 2018. When writing this piece I was interested in finding ways in which the piano and guitar timbres could be "distorted" together. Both materials interweave in and out of this sort of relationship, which create different shades of distortion. This piece was a new step into a different musical direction I've never been before, Maybe I'll continue on, or maybe I'll end up lost and having to ask for directions!
RainfallRainfall was written for the Cardiff Guitar festival.The essence of the work is solely based upon the movement from localised drops of rain towards a violent downpour. This is the first work which starts to focus towards my interest with music and time, more so the perception of time in music.

Pathway through an abstract forest
Pathway through an abstract forestPathway through an abstract forest is a dysjunct piece for solo alto flute. It takes influence from the scenery near my original home of Worcestershire, collaging contrasting materials together giving the impression of an overall image Alto Flute- Gavin Osborne Photo-Hanley Dingle (credit Harry Green)
Beneath The Surface
Beneath The Surface"If you want to know all about Andy Warhol, just look at the surface of my paintings and films and me, and there I am. There's nothing behind it"-Andy Warhol Beneath the surface was written in response to the artwork of Andy Warhol displayed at the Whitworth Art Gallery, Manchester. It deals with the conflict between contrasting soundworlds; the supposed superficial, meaningless surface that Andy Warhol claimed of his art work, and the real emotional depth that exists beneath the surface. Expression starts to organically grow from the repetative, minimalist music of the start, but in true "Warholian" fashion, these ideas are finally subdued before they get a chance to fully develop, as the emotional depth of the work is once again swept underneath the superficial.

Songs for a Madman and his Cuckoo
Songs for a Madman and his CuckooThis piece is solely based around a musical conversation between tenor (madman) and alto flute (cuckoo). This conversation overgos various emotional interactions, there are elements of seduction, manipulation an and agression between the pare to name but a few of these interactions. I have much more to say about this piece but as this should only be a short description I shant digress. Enjoy
