Amidst ample music technology education work and other creative facilitator roles, my third album is currently in construction, Delia Derbyshire Day is going from strength to strength and I have a few nice creative commissions on the go.

DELIA DERBYSHIRE DAY
After the shimmering success of Delia Derbyshire Day 2013 & 2014 with subsequent touring in England, Delia Derbyshire Day 2016 at HOME in Manchester has now taken place and DD Day 2016 touring includes Leeds College of Music so far.
It has been a wonder-full experience spreading the word about the late great Delia D and sharing my response to Delia’s fascinating archive (housed here in Manchester) entitled Audient, My Dear for software, hardware, voice, ruler and ping pong ball with live visual accompaniment by Andrea Pazos since 2014. We went to FACT in Liverpool, Sheffield, Newcastle upon Tyne, Hebden Bridge; Norwich Arts Centre; London; Oxford for OCM; And a special appearance at Ada Lovelace Day 2014, a science cabaret celebrating Women in STEM at the Royal Institution of Great Britain.
