Mists and Voices on Sound Lounge

The electroacoustic piece Mists and Voices will be broadcast on Sound Lounge next week – Tuesday 16 October, 7pm (NZDT), on Radio New Zealand Concert.

There are technical things about the piece that are tricky for radio, so it will be interesting to hear how it comes across.

The broadcast is part of the Resound series, which is a joint project between RNZ Concert and SOUNZ, aimed at making the contents of RNZC’s archive of New Zealand music available for broadcast, and online. The whole series (each week in Sound Lounge for the next few months) is highly recommended.

Hilary Hahn Encores Contest

The results of the Hilary Hahn Encores Contest have been announced. The full announcement is here.

Congratulations to the winner, Jeff Myers.

Also, my piece, Pariwhero, received an honourable mention, and the prospect of a performance by Hilary Hahn in the future.

There’s a nice write-up, and an interview with Hilary Hahn, at NewMusicBox.

My part in it is only small, but it’s really exciting to be involved in a project like this.
