MATTERS OF MATTER is an ongoing series of 52 pieces, composed and released during each week of 2018. The pieces are written to explore, exhibit or sonify the emergent natural behaviours of various physical materials (and/or/as instruments made from those materials). A new score will be composed and posted below every week.
Certain components of MATTERS OF MATTER are being written for various pre-existent collaborators, others are open to all. Components of the series may be performed independently or as part of a set, selected from the whole. If you are interested in realising a component of MATTERS OF MATTER, do please get in touch via the contact page.

"A bowed string instrument is played with a found branch, twig, or similar..."
"The materials, scratches and blemishes of a concert hall platform are ‘read’ like a vinyl record with a homemade stylus..."
