Ewan's most recent
work Frail Skies, performed by the London Symphony Orchestra, was hailed as 'an exceptional addition to the orchestral
repertoire' (Bachtrack) and described as being 'a skillful tone poem' by The Sunday Times.
The everyday features prominently in Ewan's music. Quotidian
sounds such as the flutter of tiny wings, the rumble of motors and the honks of geese are adapted into instrumental and
vocal textures, while his musical cartography explores a very direct relationship between music and the 'real world'.
Also a conductor, he
curates and directs collaborative events such as the Pierrot Project. For the past six years
he has directed the Wilderness Orchestra, whose performances have included his orchestrations of Radiohead, Aphex Twin, Nina
Simone and David Bowie.
