The American composer Garrett Schumann kindly mentioned some of my music in his weekly blog post series ‘Mapping my Musical Twitterverse‘. He had this to say:
Steven Berryman is a composer and teacher based in London. From his SoundCloud page, I listened to Echo, for women’s choir and piano, Cypher, for orchestra, and Vera est in loctum, for choir. To be clear, Steven’s output is not as bifurcated as my selection reflects, but, nonetheless, I think these works indicate the fluency within different idioms he possesses as a composer. In other words, the choral works and Cypher sound very different but, each is unfailingly persuasive. Certainly, this is a credit to Steven’s ability and discipline in knowing what will work best in these varied compositional settings.
