Clive's music has been performed in a number of theatres, venues and festivals throughout the UK. Recent performances of his choral music have been in St Martins in the Field and The Underground Theatre Eastbourne.
Clive writes music in a wide range of styles and genres, often exploring the themes he believes important. This influences the choice of texts for vocal and choral music as well as the titles and subtitles of instrumental pieces.
He is fascinated by the physical placement of performers and site specific music. "Music for Rooftops" was written for a brass quintet placed on the roof of an iconic building, with three additional trumpets on nearby rooftops. The sound ricochet's and swirls around the audience below.
An experienced choral singer, Clive has frequently performed with the major orchestras including the RPO, LSO, BBCSO, CBSO and Philarmonia, under such conductors as Askenazy, Richard Hicox and Gati.
He has also performed his songs extensively with his two acoustic duos, “5th Quarter” with fiddler Jerry Bird and “Loggerheads” with guitarist Mike Foyle.
