    Article published in Saxophone Life

    I was recently approached to write an article for Saxophone Life a rather good new digital saxophone magazine!

    Wanting to include some more classical focused articles in Saxophone Life, Nigel McGill the founder asked if I could write a piece about a seminal classical saxophone figure.

    After some thought I decided to write a profile piece about the great Fred Hemke!

    The article was published in this months issue (May), and is my first ever "published" piece of writing! It's great to see saxophone based publications like Saxophone Life and Saxophone Today founded and edited by David J. Gibson both digitally based making a come back after the end of Saxophone Journal.  Check these publications out!

  • Sonic Spaces at the Centre for Contemporary Music Practice

    My first piece to encorparate live electronics will be workshopped and then performed by the amazing bass clarinettist Marij van Gorkom [Sonic Spaces] at Brunel University London!

    " This piece looks at sound as if it where light passing through glass constantly shifting and shimmering. Sometimes corse and sharp imagine a visceral energy like an electrical undercurrent passing through unseen before it breaks and shatters. "


    Time: 14:00
    Place: Room GASK 033, Gaskell Building, Brunel University
    Free event - all welcome

    More positive reviews of my debut classical tenor saxophone album SPEAK NOW

    Available here: Planet Hugill - Bringing the tenor saxophone out of the shadows
