New Book Publication

I’m pleased to announce that an article of mine has just been published in an exciting new book from The Orpheus Institute, edited by Bob Gilmore and Darla Crispin. My article is titled, ‘Composing as a Way of Doing Philosophy’. In it, I talk about the works I wrote between c. 2005-9, including An Audience with the Trees (2005), The Bravery of Women (2006-7).

Leuven University Press describes the book as follows:

This book is the first anthology of writings about the emerging subject of artistic experimentation in music. This subject, as part of the cross-disciplinary field of artistic research, cuts across boundaries of the conventional categories of performance practice, music analysis, aesthetics, and music pedagogy.
