I studued music education at Goldsmiths' College and worked in secondary education for about fifteen years (composing a lot of music for school use) eventually being brought to my knees by the cognitive dissonance between the system and the dynamic of my own evolution. I left education to work for the Quakers and study for an M.Phil in Theology.
It is only in the last few years that I have begun to compose again trying to integrate my varied musical experiences, concerns about the nature of art and the art world and the need for a comunicable language. My own feeling is that the classical music tradition in the West is an exhausted seam and that anything I write has to reflect this.
