Claudia Molitor is a composer, artist and academic whose work draws on the traditions of contemporary classical music but extends to video, performance and fine art practices. Her work often becomes a site where conventions of notation and performance, and qualifications and hierarchies of listening and seeing are interrogated. Exploring the spaces between notions of artistic disciplines is central to her work.
Claudia’s work is regularly performed and broadcast throughout Europe. It has been heard at festivals such as Wien Modern, hcmf//, Spor, Tete a Tete, the BBC Proms, Sonica, November Music and sound, and at gallery events such as at Turner Margate, Bold Tendencies and ICA. Commissioners include the London Sinfonietta, hcmf//, the BBC and Cryptic. Recordings have been included in releases on the Jerwood Series, NMC Recordings, ORF 1 and Sub Rosa.
She often works collaboratively with artists such as choreographers Anna Koch (WELD in Stockholm) and Richard Alston (The Richard Alston Dance Company in London), video artists including Brian McClave from Red-Ochre Productions, and theatre and opera director Dan Ayling.
Recent work includes 2TwoLO for the Objects at an Exhibition project, The Singing Bridge in collaboration with Somerset House and Totally Thames and Sonoramo, a work for the rail journey from St Pancras to Margate with David Hendy, Electra Productions, Turner Contemporary, Southeastern Rail, The British Library, Uniform Books and Hornby.
In the past she co-founded and run Soundwaves Festival in Brighton and is currently working, together with artist Julie Louise Bacon, towards the launch of a new interdisciplinary music and art festival in Kent called TÖNE.
She is lecturer of music at the University of Kent.
