“Laughing Stock” for Clarinet, Accordion and Percussion


I had a great experience at the Irish Composition Summer School in Dublin where I met a host of young composers from around the world, and had some quality lectures and hang-outs with staff John McLaughlin, Martin O’leary, Kevin O’connell and guest artist Bent Sorensen.

Before and during the week I wrote “Laughing Stock” which was played and recorded by the excellent and committed members of the Concorde ensemble – Richard O’Donnell (percussion) Paul Roe (Clarinet) and Dermot Dunne (Accordion). The piece had its first live performance in the New Music Marathon at the Hackney Cut, London in September.
