My name is Steve and I’m a composer. It’s posssibly not the easiest of career routes, but I keep coming back to it. I did manage to give it up for about 5 years, but somehow it managed to find me again.
As well as composition, I am involved in free-improvisation. I work in a duo with Brendan Williams called – rather imaginitively – Williams/Kilpatrick. I have also recently started playing guitar in the Fracture Big Band, which is a free-improv collective based in Liverpool.
Like many composers, I do not rely on composition as my only source of income and hold an academic position teaching composition in a UK university.
If you are interested in hearing some of my music, then feel free to check out my MySpace site at:

I haven’t got round to creating my own website yet, but the plan is to sort that out in September.
Thanks for reading!
