The music of the "inimitable"* Daniel Figgis has been described by WNYC's John Schaefer as "hypnotic", by Hot Press as  "world-beating…marvelous…hyperintelligent" and by The Guardian as "hauntingly evocative".

Galway Arts Festival hosted the world premiere of dimmerswitch, a work in 23 interlacing sections, written for the full ensemble (10 players) plus tape. The piece received a standing ovation at St Nicholas Church on July 19th.
