Composing

I wrote all of the songs for my first show, which I played to Stephen Sondheim, and arranged some for piano – see below.

In 2020 I was commissioned to write and perform a composition for a group exhibition in Spiridonov House in Moscow, which was due to be accompanied by a music-responsive light sculpture by Moritz Waldemeyer and a custom scent by Tom Dixon, but was sadly cancelled due to the pandemic.

birthday pieces

The husband of one of the investors in my show was a Schubert fan, so I wrote him a piano arrangement of a song from my show that was a Schubert/Müller pastiche for his 50th birthday.

A piece I wrote for my sister’s 40th – the name is a tribute to the geeky titles beboppers would give their compositions in the ’40’s. Recorded and then played back on a friend’s Yamaha Disklavier.

A simple Slavic melody I wrote for a Russian student.

I wrote the below as a test: could I arrange an insanely popular grunge track for 3 pianos without it sounding terrible? You be the judge of whether I succeeded or not. I filmed it as a souvenir of a friends’ apartment just before they moved out.
