Tansy Davies (composer) and James Fisher(artist)

Join us for an exciting evening where Tansy Davies (composer) and James Fisher (artist) discuss their work in progress with John Woolrich (composer), accompanied by audio visuals. We’ll then be treated to a solo set by Tansy from 8.30pm accompanied by James Fisher’s video projections

Borne out of a fascination with nature and shamanism, and a grinding rhythmic energy, the music of Tansy Davies has been described as both ‘ sleek, hot, earthy’ and ‘transparent, brazenly beautiful’. Her music is championed by ensembles including New York Philharmonic, Ensemble Intercontemporain, and Tokyo Symphony Orchestra, and at festivals including Ultima, Présences, Donuaueschinger Musiktage, and Warsaw Autumn. Between Worlds, an operatic response to 9/11, was premiered by English National Opera in 2015, and in 2018 her chamber opera Cave was premiered with Mark Padmore, Elaine Mitchener, and London Sinfonietta. She has taught composition at both Royal Academy of Music, London, and at the Bloomington School of Music, Indiana. Recent projects include Nightingales: Ultra-Deep Field for Arditti Quartet, Monolith: I Extend My Arms, for the strings of Britten Sinfonia, and a residency at Concertgebouw Amsterdam culminating in the ensemble piece Soul Canoe.
