about

OSTRACA 1 - 13 ‘Audio files from the studio recording of my opera HERESY were broken up and fragmented in software. These fragments were placed across a midi keyboard and then I played them into sequencing software. New rhythms and harmonies were layered in afterwards to complete. Unrecognisably new pieces were formed from this re-assemblage’.

An ostracon is a fragment of ancient pottery, usually broken off from a vase, that has an inscription scratched onto it.

TO KNOW AGAIN completes the Ostracon series and references it.
GHOST PLAYHOUSE - an abandoned derelict performance space and its long history. Not directly related to the ostraca....although

The opera HERESY can be heard here (act 1):
