Carnegie Hall have posted the video of the entire performance of Gumboots from February's ACJW concert in Skidmore College. We were fortunate enough to have a whole film crew documenting the trip and as you can see the results are stunning. This was the first ever concert in the fabulous Zankel Center there. I'm looking forward to returning there this coming Feb for the premiere of my new piece Steampunk (whose title, by the way, is the explaination of my ACJW Enigma post!)

At the risk of being labelled some kind of pyromaniac composer I now have a second project in development on the theme of fire.
The first of course is the opera The Firework Maker's Daughter (of which more soon), but now I'm thrilled to have been selected for the PRS for Music Foundation's New Music 20x12 initiative. 20 new works, each 12 minutes long, have been commissioned to showcase the best of new British musical talent. The blurb is below, but most cool of all is, I'll be working with a fire artist. I've no idea what this will entail, other than a great deal of fun!

THE MYRIAD TRIO: THE EYE OF NIGHT
The Myriad Trio launches their debut disc, featuring classic work for flute, viola, and harp. The last piece on the CD is the source of inspiration for the disc and the work that anchors the album: The Eye of Night. Commissioned and premiered by The Myriad Trio in 2010, The Eye of Night, written by the British-American composer David Bruce, highlights the very special qualities that make this instrumental combination distinctive and this unique ensemble extraordinary.
