Luke Carver Goss is a composer and performer who writes for and performs with unusual and more traditional instrumental combinations. He collaborates regularly with poet and broadcaster Ian McMillan. Their group The Ian McMillan Orchestra toured the length and breadth of the UK, and featured on The South Bank Show. Together, they co-curated Sage Gateshead's first Words & Music Festival. The centre-piece of this was Homing In, a work for gigantic instrumental and vocal forces. Their most recent piece together is a new carol, A Single Snowflake – a commission for Chester Cathedral.
He has also worked with several touring bands, including The Angel Brothers, The Devil’s Violin Company, Tea Hodzic Trio and Szapora.
Luke’s music includes commissions for Black Dyke Brass Band, Tredegar Town Band, Sage Gateshead, BBC National Orchestra of Wales, BBC Symphony Orchestra and London Sinfonietta. He was a composer for the Cultural Olympiad and his piece Pure Gold: a 4X4 Relay was broadcast on BBC Radio 2 and 3, and released on NMC Recordings.
