I was over the moon to be commissioned by Mr McFall’s chamber to compose a new piece of music for them to debut a Celtic Connections. The concept of the concert was to invite composers who they have previously worked with and give us the opportunity to further develop our skills. The other featured composers in the concert were Corrina Hewat and Kate Young so I felt in very esteemed company!
I wanted to use the opportunity to explore the sounds made in hospitals and hopefully craft them into a piece of music which would make the listeners next hospital experience less scary, and more groovy.
The concert was recorded live by their sound engineer extraordinaire Ben Seal and is now available online via Soundcloud, HERE: Hospital, by Gillian Fleetwood. Played by Mr McFall’s Chamber
