Judith Weir CBE, Master of the King's Music

Laurence Glazier

As a child I learnt notation from books to write my music down. When Clive Sinclair introduced home computers, I wrote machine code to store and play back tunes. I took private lessons in composition from Chris Sansom, and together we developed and marketed Fractal Music software, which seemed so good to me that I focused on music beyond the ability of computers and studied for the Diploma in Harmony and Counterpoint at the City Lit, followed by private tuition from Alan Parsons. This led to the performance of Minuet and Trio for Small Ensemble.
