I am a composer interested in ensemble performance in the digital age: I lead an interdisciplinary project on networking technologies and the experience of ensemble performance. I also work on music and silent film, for which I have produced many original scores for both early film and in collaboration with film makers and visual artists today.

At Sussex I am Professor of Composition in Music. My outputs include compositions, compositions with electronics, compositions with film, music and visuals including film music, music for 'silent' cinema, music theatre and opera, and collaborative papers on ensemble performance with technology.
