A composer interested in ritual and collective expression as a way of responding to climate change, using poetry to connect the issues with the human condition.
“I’m a composer interested in ritual and collective expression as a way of responding to climate change. I am writing a climate-themed choral cantata for community choir and ensemble. I use poetry for many historical eras to connect the contemporary issue of climate change with the human condition. I have previously written instrumental music for a variety of ensembles on ecological themes, including Ecopoem for the Britten Sinfonia. I am studying for a Masters in classical composition at the Conservatorium van Amsterdam, and graduated from Cambridge University with a degree in music in 2013.”
