Here working with Jan Bradley the Skaparis’s Multi-Percussionist for the Numan/Skaparis Tour in his basement percussion studio at his home earlier today.
I don’t think I’ve seen such an amazing array of different and cool percussion instruments in one space!
Interview starts at 8mins 30secs.
My first Radio interview about the upcoming UK Tour with Gary Numan and the Skaparis Orchestra. Many thanks to Karl Bavin!
Here rehearsing with members of the Skaparis and the Classical Uproar team at the RNCM – we’re getting very excited about the show on April 28th!
I’m very happy to say that I’ll be conducting the Skaparis again for the Leeds International Festival for another collaborative concert with Simon Withenshaw and Suddi Raval on April 28th!
We will be working with the same team as last August with reduced players, I’ll have 4 of my amazing string players and the Classical Uproar band and of course the fantastic Michelle Adamson and Lisa Doleman on Backing Vocals and star singers Luke Neptune and Tameka.
Hope to see you all there!
Tickets can be purchased from the Leeds International Festival Box Office and there is also a link on the Classical Uproar Facebook site!
Hello everyone, it’s been a while since I’ve posted – the reason being that there have been an incredible amount of things happening behind the scenes at SR Music and the Skaparis Collective.
The Skaparis Orchestra’s UK Tour has been postponed due to some very exciting developments in December 2017 and it’s now the focus of all my energy and attention towards what may be a much bigger tour in November of this year.
This isn’t the only development, and I will have some great news soon in relation to my collaboration with the Producer and Film Score composer Simon Withenshaw, who is currently working for TT Games, a subsidiary of Warner Brothers.
Plans are also being laid for more collaborations with the amazing violinist Miriam Davis, Film maker and Producer Carl Whitely and I’m starting to work at the Royal Northern College of Music with the RNCM Session Orchestra.
News will be coming in thick and fast, so I’ll be updating you all as quick as my fingers will keep up!
This photo by the amazing Paul Husband at the Monastery gig on August 25th literally took my breath away as it looks like one of Rembrandt’s paintings – such incredible quality, thanks Paul!
