As a performer, Breeze has a diverse range. Most notably in 2017, Breeze worked with New Order in the MIF ‘∑(No,12k,Lg,17Mif)’, and they went on tour with the band in 2018.
In July 2021 Breeze received one of Sound and Music’s COVID-19 Composer Awards:
“I am absolutely delighted to be selected – this is a project I am immensely passionate about. I am composing a concept album of electronic music across a multitude of genres that cross the boundaries between music, sound, and audio theatre, whilst exploring themes of capitalism in music: how this affects the music we write, how this commodifies people, how musicians become public property, etc. My music and my writing are highly conceptual, and collaborating with Sam Redway will help bring clarity to this composition.”
