Born: April 27, 1982 Primary Instrument: Saxophone
Born into a musical family in London, Nick moved to Dublin in 2001 and has since established a highly successful international career as saxophonist, composer, educator and producer.
As a composer much of his work is informed by the ongoing dialogue between traditional music and its contemporary interpretation. He also has a deep fascination with patterns and form in nature, with recent works exploring mathematical models of bird flocking behaviour, and the role of chaos theory in the movement and production of sound in water.
He has been commissioned to write works for numerous ensembles, organisations and musicians including the The Arts Council of Ireland, The European Saxophone Ensemble, Music for Galway, The Vienna Saxophonic Orchestra, ARTE Quartett, SoundSet, The Contempo String Quartet and Paul Roe, Sefiroth Ensemble, The Dublin City Jazz Orchestra, Yurodny Ensemble, The RISE Saxophone Quartet, Lismore Music Festival, RISE Saxophone Quartet, Tarab Ensemble, Common Ground, Rough Magic Theatre Company and the Fuzzy Logic Ensemble....
