St Albans Organ Museum

Posted on Tuesday, March 31, 2009

If mechanical instruments are your thing, you absolutely must visit the St Albans Instrument Museum, which boasts a startling array of musical contraptions, my favourite of which is probably the mechanical violin and piano duet. Check out this youtube clip for a hint of the flavour.

Now read about my piece Caja de musica (which means "music box" in Spanish) which is inspired partly by music boxes and other mechanical instruments.

Gumboots Interview

Posted on Tuesday, March 3, 2009

Carnegie Hall has published an interview I did with them shortly before the premiere of Gumboots last October. In it you can hear me talk about my love of world music instruments shops, explain the connection between my temperament and gumboot dancing, and hear excerpts of Piosenki and Gumboots.
