Over the last few months my ensemble Trio Atem has performed five new commissions (Eleri Pound, Scott Wilson, Larry Goves, Martin Iddon, Mic Spencer), so much of my time has been spent learning this music and navigating the new technical challenges posed. It’s been very exciting! We’ll be performing all the commissions together as part of the Leeds University Contemporary Music Weekend on 21 April. This concert will also feature the second performance of my new piece for solo voice, DNA. There’s a recording of the premiere here https://soundcloud.com/#trio-atem/dna_nina-whiteman-solo-voice.
I’ve also revised my bass flute piece The invention of clouds so that it can be performed without the offstage instruments. Gavin Osborn gave a fantastic performance of this new version in March at the International Anthony Burgess Foundation, Manchester.
