There’s a lot of tension and ambiguity in my music. It’s a generalisation I ought not to make, but I sometimes feel I’m walking a tightrope between old, ‘expressive’ music and new ‘soundscapes.’ I want to innovate and not to be comfortable in the past. I believe our lives are too complicated now for that. At the same time, I still want my music to be expressive and personal.

Composition is comforting and cathartic for me. It’s a way of bringing relief to tensions and frustrations that I can’t express in reality.

I’ve completed my study at the Royal College of Music, London, with Haris Kittos.
