Edward co-directs Bastard Assignments, a composers’ collective that hosts regular events in London as well as performing across Europe. In early 2014, Bastard Assignments created the event series S/M/L with funding from the Sound and Music Composer Curator scheme. We received support from Arts Council England for our 2015/16 Fresh & Clean series and we are currently receiving support from ACE and PRSF for 2016/7’s NEW TEETH series. Bastard Assignments have performed in Copenhagen and Aarhus with Danish collective AUT; Frontiers Festival, Birmingham with Andy Ingamells; headlined Nonclassical at The Shacklewell Arms and The Russet in London and produced a show at Block T in Dublin. In 2016 we received a British Council Artists’ International Development Fund grant for performances in Berlin and Munich.
Edward directs two inclusive community choirs for Certitude. The choirs have performed at the Southbank Centre, 3rd Sector Awards and at Certitude’s Cut A Rug and Unrugged nights.
He teaches music and composition at City Lit, Morley College and Trinity Laban’s junior department.
