I’m so excited to be one of the composers joining Streetwise for the Re:sound project. I had a great time working with Streetwise last summer on their digital lockdown project ’The Deer’, and I’m looking forward to collaborating again in person. Streetwise is a wonderful organisation with heart, imagination and ambition. Although I do a lot of work with singers and choirs, opera is relatively new ground for me, so I’m looking forward to having my ears opened to new sounds, methods and ideas. It will be great to learn and grow as a composer, and I’m excited about co-creating something totally new which speaks to London life and its people.
