First shoot on a 5D mkiii with an f2.8 24-70mm STM II last week. Here’s a screenshot of the video I shot for fellow RCM graduate, oboist Penny Smith. So pleased with it! Expect some lush guitar videos from me with my new setup in the coming weeks...

Have created a guitar version of Reich’s Clapping Hands for my upcoming album, the idea is as each different entry of the clap comes in you get a different sound produced by the guitar that is looped and remains until the end of the piece, the result is a sea of rhythm and harmony that sounds REALLY cool. Still finalising the nuts and bolts but here’s an excerpt of the ending with just the percussive sounds solo’d - Definitely has the Flamenco club flavour about it (which was what the piece was inspired by originally)

Here's a shot of Matt looking all majestic and mysterious at last night's #EdFringe show! If you want to see me you'll have to come to our FINAL show this evening!!😉 (I realise this requires you to physically be in Edinburgh...)

Huge thanks to Buckinghamshire Music Trust for commissioning me last year to write a piece paying homage to one of my biggest influences, the late Roland Dyens. It was a real honour to be asked along to share the premiere of it at London Guitar Studio last night with Bucks Youth Guitar Ensemble. They played great and their director Gareth Holwill is making great things happen for UK guitar so kudos to Gareth and all his efforts! Watch out guitar people! x #Guitar #Music #Youth #YouthMusic #MusicForYouth #LondonGuitarStudio #LiveMusic #RolandDyens #KnoblochStrings #HillGuitars #ClassicalGuitar

FAO LONDON FOLKS: 2 really great gigs coming up this month that I'll be playing at!

-5th July I'll be playing 'Roland Dyens - A Tribute Concert' at London Guitar Studio. BYGE will also be playing my ensemble piece 'Hommage à Dyens'! (Seriously can't wait to hear it!!!) This is a free event but there are only a few spaces left so contact gho@bucksmusic.org to reserve a seat.
-22nd July I'll be playing the 'Sunday Night at the Asylum: America' in Peckham (Asylum = REALLY cool space!). I'll be playing my own version of Reich's Electric Counterpoint as part of the evening.
