It was an amazing 4 days at the 2018 Mise-En Festival.  I met many imaginative, free-thinking, intelligent, witty and talented composers, all of us composing very different and distinctive art music.  Moon Young Ha and Jordann Davis and the whole Ensemble Mise-En have worked extremely hard, especially on the last day’s 4-hour long Music Marathon.  I was privileged to be able to meet so many brilliant thinkers, creators and performers.  I wrote an ambitious work for the festival: in it I try out ways of achieving entirely non-equally tempered spectral harmonies and their inversions.  The Mise-En Ensemble tackled the piece with precision and dogged determination!  It was hard work, but the rewards were immense.
