welcome

 

I am a soprano, specialising in the gnarly edges of contemporary classical music. Most of what I sing is brand new; much of what I sing has been written especially for me — it's a voyage of discovery. I am also the founder of eavesdropping, a series and a symposium in East London, and co-director of all that dust, a new label for new music.

May 2021

 

May marks the beginning of some actual concerts. All in the UK for now, and mostly to no audience, but it's a start. It's a pleasure to be back with my ensemble, EXAUDI, for our usual mix of the old and the new: quirky old music by Vicentino, Marenzio and Gesualdo appears in programmes for the Wigmore Hall and City University Summer Sounds, and brand-new music in 'EXPOSURE2021'. In June I take on Samuel Beckett's Not I in a double bill with Morton Feldman's Three Voices, performed only for a live audience at Snape Maltings. 

 

During the quiet times I have been putting energy into commissioning some new tunes: in 2021 I shall be working closely with composers Lara Agar, Laurence Crane, Laura Bowler, Pascale Criton and Luke Nickel. Explore my SPECIAL PROJECTS page to find out more.

 

Recently, I have spent more time writing words about being a performer and collaborator than time actually performing or collaborating. The latest offering is 'Inside Out', a video essay made with filmmaker Jessie Rodger for Berliner Festspiele / MaerzMusik – Festival for Time Issues. This essay layers raw footage of me in my erstwhile London studio space, reading my own words, reflecting on the words of others and doing my practice: the result is a strange and intimate glimpse into one artist’s efforts to keep creative and connected.
