Currently working on a commission from the Royal Scottish National Orchestra to compose 'Staffa'. This is a multi-media collaboration with BAFTA-award winning director Gerry Fox. Inspired by Mendelssohn's journey to the Hebrides, it features unique drone-based footage of the island and Fingal's Cave. The orchestral recording sessions are in Glasgow in February under the baton of Associate Conductor Jean-Claude Picard. They will take place in the RSNO's new state-of-the-art concert hall and recording space, engineered by Linn Records chief producer/engineer Phil Hobbs.
