Music

From 1980 to 1997, Haworth Hodgkinson composed and recorded approximately 100 compositions. Few of these recordings have been heard by more than a small group of close friends.

Between 1997 and 2011 he produced few new compositions, but continued to produce music for theatre, dance and poetry projects, often improvised. It is in this context that many people will have come across his music.

His interest in improvisation was further stimulated in 2007 by a weekend workshop with Fred Frith at the Sound Festival in Aberdeen, and he has since played with Susanne Olbrich's Strange Little Orchestra in Forres and Findhorn and the Glasgow Improvisers Orchestra at the Sound Festival in 2008.

He began to compose and record more regularly again in 2011, and he maintains an intention to revisit pieces that were left incomplete in 1997, as well as to re-record or remaster some of his earlier compositions. The list of compositions here includes titles of selected pieces he intends to revisit.

In 2013 Haworth Hodgkinson launched the High Moss project to make more of his music available online. In September 2015 High Moss released its first album, Red Nocturnes, featuring compositions recorded between 1995 and 2014.
