Turning Point Ensemble (chamber orchestra) and the Nu:BC Collective (piano trio) have teamed up to commission a triple concerto from me, with assistance from the Chan Centre. They approached me to compose a piece that would place Nu:BC as concerto soloists within the larger Turning Point instrumentation, setting up what is essentially a modern interpretation of the baroque concerto grosso.

In this energetic piece, I pit the two ensembles against each other in a musical tug-of-war, creating a sort of consonance/dissonance relationship in terms of how well the two groups are “getting along”—just like the stereotypical stormy couple that is forever breaking up and then making up.

Come see the first piano-vocal workshop performance of my new opera, The Harvester. One half of an evening-length production being spearheaded by soprano Stacie Dunlop, The Harvester is based on Paul Van Dyck’s tragic sci-fi play of the same name. It tells the story of a man living in a dystopian future where people live forever but at great cost to the environment. When a long-lost family member finds the man, alone in his bunker, she forces him to question the importance of immortality and whether or not his long and solitary life has been lived in vain.
