Sam Hayden's schismatics (2007, rev. 2010) for electric violin and computer, performed by violinist Mieko Kanno and himself on computer, has been selected by Graham McKenzie, Director of the Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival, to be included on a new HCMF 2012 sampler, available for download from the NMC label.
"...Hayden is at this moment one of the most compelling voices in the European new music scene." (Graham McKenzie, November 2012).
A Hayden Portrait CD (presence/absence) was released in June 2012 as part of the NMCDebut Discs series, including works performed by ELISION (misguided), Trio EKL (system/error), Mieko Kanno (schismatics) and Ensemble Mosaik (presence/absence and Die Modularitäten).
