I was commissioned by the artist, André Wallace, to create some music in response to his body of work, The Voyage. This resulted in the CD, the Coracle of Life, 2019, which accompanied his sculpture and drawings in his exhibition between October 2018 and January 2019, at the Poole Museum.

I have also commissioned other composers to write for solo flute and flute and chamber ensembles:
