Metric Impro Video

Last year in April 2017, I had the honor of being asked to join several students as the Guildhall representatives to the European Impro Intensive, held at the Hague Conservatory. Included in that week of improvisation lessons, were several filming sessions, where teachers would have students demonstrate their exercises. These were all then collected and – one year later –…

IPE – Our Finals!

My Masters in Music is truly not your average conservatory program. Instead of having to perform an hour long concert of repertoire, we have 40 minutes in Milton Court Studio Theatre to do whatever we want. Of course, that output comes out of a year of intense research and reflection into our practice. But the results can be as diverse as a…

Curious Unfinished

The last day of Curious was a free-for-all interactive day of making. A whole range of interesting artists came to the Barbican Exhibition Halls to present their work, try out new things, and generally share their process with visitors. I was particularly excited to use it as another opportunity to perform with THAT! Ensemble. Each time we perform, I seek…

Curious Gig Night

After finishing our finals in June, I worked closely with my Guildhall classmates and colleagues to create a piece for the Curious Festival in the Barbican Exhibition Halls in early July. We started with the prompt “acknowledge the inherently political act of inquiry”, from which we decided we wanted to collaborate with a visual artist who makes political art. Based on…

A Week with the Messengers

July was a very busy time. Immediately after we concluded the Curious/Map-making/Unfinished week at the Barbican Exhibition Halls, we jumped into our most ambitious project with the Messengers, yet – recording an album, and performing live at both the Jazz Cafe and the Walthamstow Garden Party main stage. During that week, I was also doing a workshop training with the…

Within Arm’s Reach

Within Arm’s Reach, a collaborative cross-arts research project “integrating theatre processes with music through exploring the concept of personal space”. We shared the results of our work on December 3rd, 2016 in the Milton Court Gym. Collaborators: Rodrigo Viterbo, Rachel Mangold, Geoffa Fells, Maya Kh, Jack Wills, Mārtiņš Baumanis, Kate Smith with help from Raphael Eilenberg and Mixalis Aristidiou. A Guildhall School of Music and Drama Student-led project  …

Messengers at Field Day

Lots of good news all around for the Messengers band. Not only did we have an awesome gig on the mainstage at Field Day, one of our tracks was played on US radio last week, and we’ve been offered the opportunity to go into the studio and record an album on the Luaka Bop label! Kaboom! For those who don’t know, The Messengers is a…

You Can Not Return

On July 3rd and 4th, two months of collaborative work with Taka concluded with the premiere of our piece, “You Can Not Return”. The piece explores how human beings process and respond to the idea that time does not flow, rather past, present and future exist equally. Using interviews, sound experiments, composition, and sound design, I created a four-dimensional sound experience that…

Curious – Podcast!

I’ve been asked to help with promotion of the Curious Festival by writing blog posts and now, doing an interview with the Guildhall Events Podcast. So on a Wednesday morning in late June I found myself in the Guildhall’s basement recording studio having a chat about the festival. As only a student and participant, and not one of the organizers,…
