TARAB CUTS
In 2011 I produced a 15 minute piece for saxophone and sound files, commissioned (by Performa/Tarek Atoui) as a modern day response to the classical Arabic music in the private collection of Kamal Kassar. It visited New York, Sharjah and London.

Out of the Machine recently asked me to extend this to a full length concert work, Tarab Cuts, utilising additional recordings and sources.

With drummer Mark Sanders joining me, we have performed at Bristol New Music, Counterflows, Holland Festival, l'Auditori, EFG London Jazz Festival and Novas Frequencias.

Tarab Cut was shortlisted for the 2014 British Composer Awards (Jazz Composition).
