An excerpt from my piece for Basel Sinfonietta was broadcast on the Swiss TV programme Was Lauft on 9 November. They filmed bits of the second half of the concert, which included my piece and Christian Wolff’s Spring Two. The programme also had a feature on Mike and the Mechanics as part of an 80s revival tour, and he sat behind me on the plane home as it turned out. The performance will also be broadcast on DRS2 on 28 December, with the Huddersfield performance going out on BBC Radio 3 as part of Hear and Now on Christmas Eve. Given its late start, it’s entirely possible that this might usher in Christmas for some people. What a worrying thought.
