I have started composing a new PERCUSSION TRIO:

James Beauton (beautonj@gmail.com) and TALA RASA have organised a consortium to commission a trio where each player has a mallet instrument as the main voice and non pitched instruments built around the mallet instrument into a multi percussion set up. I have now started to work on this project

SEXTET:

I have completed WATER a percussion sextet with piano. The piece is in 3 movements and lasts about 25 minutes. (The sextet was commissioned by a consortium of universities and conservatories organisd by Michael Burritt.)

OTHER PROJECTS

The following is a list of percussion projects/pieces that I would like to compose.

1_ Estudios de Frontera. I would like to add a third (middle/slower) movement to my percussion quintet. This would require a level of funding of about US $ 5,000. 

2_ Concerto for percussion and symphony orchestra. This is an initiative by Michael Burritt.

3_ Piece for marimba and string quartet.

Since there are obvious logistic difficulties in touring or even performing a piece for marimba and string quartet, it does not make sense to write anything other that a very substantial piece for this combination. The duration of the piece would have to be at least 20/25 minutes.
