Recent works include Music for Rock Ensemble, commissioned for "50 Years of Minimalism", premiered by Katia and Marielle Labèque, Chandler and ensemble at Kings Place, London on 26 November 2011  and The Tuning of the World, a realisation of his evolving 24-hour, 24 part, sustained tone composition, for octet, with tuned sine wave generators, released by Untitled Recordings on 1 March 2012. In 2013 he formed Happy Families with his partner Lucia Rivero.
