"All this imagery, evoked an overlay of surveillance, suspicion and latent malice; feelings further influenced by the edgy musical composition of Szymon Brzoska (well known for his many collaborations with Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui)."

In 2009 Polish dancer and choreographer Małgorzata Dzierżon has commissioned me to compose a piece for cello solo for her dance solo project I will (premiered in The Place Theatre in London). I was very excited when Małgorzata invited me to write music for the new project of the New Movement Collective. Casting Traces is a very special performance, combining dance, video, music and architecture, inspired by Paul Auster's novel The New York Trilogy. The music, written for violin and electronics (performed live by the talented violinist Linda Jankowska) follows the dancers through the paper maze, diving into the world of illusion and mystery.
