Some very exciting news: My Symphony No.2 that was commissioned by Lynchpin will be recorded by the Czech National Symphony Orchestra at the Rudolfinum concert hall in Prague!!
This is the large collaborative science/arts project that I have been alluding to for some time. I have now been working with with PhD candidates Nick Roden and Rob Johnston (Profiles below) for nearly two years in pulling together the science that has informed the composition of this large scale composition.

Centered around the topic of ‘the other CO2 problem’ – ocean acidification – and linked with the vital role of phytoplankton in planetary metabolism, this is an extensive creative venture in sound and image through which we want to generate a different experience of ocean science.
