Listen to my music

My name is Connor W McLean, I am currently living in Cardiff Wales studying composition at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama. My music has been played by various ensembles in Britain and the United Stated.

As a composer I find myself drawn to large scale pieces in the form of opera and more conceptual durational music (time art). I have always had a keen interest in the opposite ends of music, medieval and contemporary, their influence is apparent in my work. As of today I have written many pieces of chamber music, pieces for solo instruments, large ensemble music and a short opera.

I am currently working on my first large scale opera titled "Deaths Other Kingdom" which I plan to be finished and fully produced by the middle of 2017.

I am interested in the composers Morton Feldman, John Luther Adams, George Crumb, John Cage, George Friedrich Hass, Debussy and Anton Webern and many others
