The Stairway Suite is a collection of seven orchestral versions of the song 'Stairway to Heaven', each in the style of a different, well known composer. (Also regularly performed, mainly by youth or community orchestras.)
Speech and music, effability and ineffability is a chamber opera, performed as a plenary session at the International Conference on Cognitive Science, held at Sydney in 2003. It was also performed as a plenary at the International Conference on Music Perception and Cognition. Although the debate was about as serious as one might expect from an opera, the issues discussed are scientifically interesting and the background paper from the proceedings is on the same site.
Sydney Sketches is a symphonic tone poem. Four movements to evoke four locations during a summer's day in that city. Will be performed by Woollahra Philharmonic in December.
Parts and scores. This music is self published and is available from me or downloaded from this site. For amateur orchestras, the score and parts may be available for the cost of post and handling, though I usually ask users of my music to make a donation to a charity.
