“Crybaby” was written at the same time as Trump’s Tweets and was the encore played at the premiere. A 3 minute song, again written for Brent Damkier, it takes its name from the “crybaby” mute, used by the brass in Trump’s Tweets.
Following Trump’s Tweets I decided to write a children’s piece, and the idea of a “Carnival of the Dinosaurs” came to me one morning over coffee. Conceived of as orchestral piece with narrator like “Peter and the Wolf” it is approx. 35-40 minutes long.
“Creed” is a short work for choir that was commissioned by Brend Damkier.
“Sarah” is an operetta currently being composed.
Tom Woods is one of Australia’s leading operatic conductors. He In 2019 my first major work “Trump’s Tweets” was performed in Regensburg. Using a tenor soloist, choir, large orchestra, six percussionists, electric guitar, sitar, electric bass, a wide variety of brass mutes, diet coke cans, whistles and other gadgets the work had a wild and enthusiastic reception from the public and a memorable explosion of rage from the Intendant. Written for tenor Brent Damkier it exploits his ability to sing in a variety of styles and across a huge range CONTACT
