snapshots from yugoslavia (2020)

In Jan-Feb of 2020, I had the privilege of working with Evan Hadfield on a series for his YouTube channel, Rare Earth, composing music for his five-part documentary on the history of Bosnia and the former states of Yugoslavia.

The documentary is available to watch in full below, or the five parts can be viewed separately here.


the house is now open (2020)

'The House Is Now Open' is an initiative created by the OSO Arts Centre London to connect visual and musical artists during the COVID-19 pandemic.

I created a series of audiovisual performance art pieces with London-based performance artist Spike Mclarrity (a.k.a Barnes White Rabbit), with most pieces being predominantly solo piano (with the exception of 'Dive' and 'All Dressed Up With Nowhere to Go'). The pieces were first premiered on the OSO Arts Centre YouTube channel, as well as CODA Online Festival 2020 in collaboration with Royal Birmingham Conservatoire.

A full list of pieces is available on request. [CONTACT]
