Nigel had two large-scale works performed  at the International Brass Band Contest (IBBC) on the 11th November at the Lemmensinstituut in Leuven, Belgium. Redbridge Brass from the UK, under the direction of Jeremy Wise performed Nigel’s space odyssey `Earthrise’ to great effect, while Belgium’s Brassband Buizingen performed Nigel’s Sci-Fi fantasy `When Worlds Collide’ (or subtitled’ Little Green Men in Intergalactic Spaceships with Rayguns and Phasers) which made use of backing a track plus an array of unusual percussion instruments!!
