I have added another item to the CD page, a disc of Tuba Concertos played by Peter Whish-Wilson and the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra.

Last year involved me with the recent Asian Games in Qatar. I wrote several fanfares and pieces of ceremonial music for the opening and closing ceremonies, as well as arrangements of the Qatar National Anthem. I am told it all went well, but I am still unsure what of mine was actually used (all my work was done here in Australia, I did not actually attend the event). I expect those directly involved are still too exhausted to answer emails!

Other recent commissions include a suite for Brass Band, "Tanunda Suite", written for Tanunda's 150th anniversary (2007).
