Statement for “50:50 in 2030”

This year I was lucky enough to have two dear pieces of mine performed at Wien Modern — MOULT, performed by the RSO conducted by Marin Alsop, and dead wasps in the jam-jar (iii), performed by Arditti Quartet.
It has been a really inspiring week, meeting and talking with fellow composers and musicians, and walking around Vienna!

As part of Wien Modern, I was also asked to join a panel about gender equality, and what we can do to make our new music community more inclusive. I wrote a short (quite personal) statement, which you can read here.
