'Amergin's Song'. A new commission for Oxford Youth Dance Company

March 2012

An original composition to accompany a piece by this Oxford based dance company of dancers aged 16-25.

A 15 minute dance piece based upon the ancient Celtic poem ‘Amergin’s Song’.  Full of incredible imagery and poetic language this was a brilliant text to work with and the company created a very evocative piece.  This was the first time I’d composed retrospectively, creating music to choreography that was already developed and also a first for working remotely to video footage that was sent to me as the project progressed.  It was good to discover this really interesting and exciting new way of working.
