On 7 April, Decibel performed my piece ‘I See Now Why People Hide‘ in a fantastic concert of new works by staff at Birmingham Conservatoire. This concert was for me the highlight of my time at the Conservatoire. The whole programme was excellent and highlighted the level of creativity at work at Birmingham Conservatoire. This compositional creativity could only be matched by such sheer dedication by all the performers involved who went above and beyond the call of duty in putting on such a brilliant concert. Again, this level of professionalism could only be matched by the dedication of Ed Bennett & Fumiko Miyachi, in putting together such a fine concert which was a large logistical undertaking. It was a great privilege for me to be programmed amongst such eminent composers and a great honour to have my music performed by such virtuosic and dedicated performers. I only hope that we can work together soon again. I believe that this concert will live long in the minds of all who were there to experience its beauty.
