Additional Information

A recording of my piece 'lunch?' which was premiered in the Cambridge Music Festival by Huw Watkins, Joy Lisney and Scott Lygate.

 

The piece is inspired by the atmosphere, words and rhythms of Django Wylie's poem 'I want to buy you lunch':

sometimes I feel sad and i look

at your Facebook and then i feel 

a strange combination of happy

and sad. i crack a grolsch and its 

taste is one of melancholy and promise.

 

i think back to the times 

i'd meet you after dark and the excitement

that charged 

my drunken heart. i think 

of rolling down hills

in hyde park and thinking

you were the mould 

i'd force my life to fill. 

i think of all the times 

i'd insist on getting wine you'd correctly

never touch, and passing out fused and content.

 

all i wanted was to cook for you,

to call you

in the faint jaundiced murmur of the barely

morning and hear you say "maybe lunch?
