Leigh Landy performed in the opening concert at this year’s Musicacoustica 2011 festival in Beijing in October. A picture of Landy performing appeared in ‘China Daily’. He also presented an entire MTI concert at this festival.
Clonal Colonies, a commission from New York's Avian Orchestra, was premiered by the ensemble in September in Delaware and at the The Cell, New York. The work is in two movements, for Pierrot ensemble, computer-realised sound, and video. A "clonal colony" is a group of genetically identical plants. Child plants are propagated by "runners" that emerge from a parent plant. This serves as an analogy to the "Variable-Coupled Map Networks" algorithm approach that Battey applied in composing the piece.
