New Music Biennial 2017
Bite-sized pieces of new music

Anna Meredith by Kate BonesAnna Meredith

Concerto for Beatboxer and Orchestra

 

Anna Meredith is a composer, producer and performer of both acoustic and electronic music. Her sound is often described as ‘maximalist’, ‘uncategorisable’ and ‘genre-hopping’ and straddles the worlds of contemporary classical, avant pop, electronica and experimental rock. 

 

Southbank Centre commissioned Anna Meredith to write a new piece for Beatboxer soloist Shlomo and Orchestra in 2010. The Concerto is an acclaimed modern classical work recognising the human voice box as a musical instrument.

 

About Anna Meredith

Anna Meredith is a composer, producer and performer of both acoustic and electronic music.  Her sound is frequently described as ‘uncategorisable’ and ‘genre-defying’ and straddles the different worlds of contemporary classical, art pop, electronica, ambient installations and experimental rock – or as the Guardian said: "majestic bangers"...

Her music has been performed everywhere from the BBC Last Night of the Proms to flashmob body-percussion performances in the M6 Services, PRADA & Fendi fashion campaigns, numerous films, installations and documentaries, pop festivals, clubs and classical concert halls worldwide and broadcast on BBC Radio 1, 2, 3, 4 & 6.
