In July 2012 he recorded new works for choir — including 3 Christmas carols — with Oxford-based choir Commotio, under Matthew Berry.
He is working on a major piece for music theatre based on Sir Walter Scott's classic story of Ivanhoe, also due for completion in 2013. Mike and the rest of the writing team are simultaneously developing this as a feature film.
He is a full member of PRS / MCPS and a professional member of the British Academy of Songwriters, Composers and Authors (BASCA). He is also a published author on music education.
He is very active in his work of bringing music
to others, whether as a composer-in-residence
or as a conductor & teacher. He works regularly
with young musicians and teaches composition.
"Working on your own, or in a studio is a way
of life for most professional composers," says
Mike, "but I like to keep in touch with grass roots
music-making through my teaching, composing
and workshop activity. It keeps me fresh."
