I’ve spent the last few months developing musical mazes and ideas concerning game-like ensemble interaction. The results of this include a new piece for my ensemble Trio Atem, House of Mazes. This piece will form part of our tenth birthday UK tour and has been created with funds from RNCM Research and Arts Council England. I am also working on a second piece – as yet nameless! – that explores similar concepts. You will be able to hear this in Edinburgh and Glasgow in April, and it has been funded by Creative Scotland.
