The 33rd Asian Composers League International Conference

I was very lucky to be invited to attend the 33rd Asian Composers League International Conference in Manila, Philippines on 6th-12th November. My composition ‘Breath’ was performed at the National University of Philippines. I loved the collaboration between all the composers that attended the conference. It was inspiring and nurturing and I am looking forward to the next conference in Hanoi, Vietnam in 2016.

Rock meets Classical

What did you do on school Holidays?

Together with my nephew who is 12 years old and a keen rock guitar player we decided to play a mix! Classical (which is me) meets Rock!

We improvised on two themes: Piano concerto number 1 by Tchaikovsky and ‘Beat it’ by Michael Jackson! Recorded it in a studio and came up with awesome track!
