Open Fund for Music Creators: Anna Phoebe
Between Worlds is a collaboration between classical-electronic music and BioScience.
Composer and violinist Anna Phoebe is writing a new choral & ensemble piece responding to images from research undertaken at the School of Biosciences, University of Kent. The research is funded by Cancer Research UK and the work goes to combat diseases such as cancer and Alzheimer’s.
The project has been taken to the Royal Ballet School and used for collaborative work with the students for a dance project. Anna will be taking the project to University of York’s Festival of Ideas, where she will take part in a panel discussion discussing the relationship between maths, music and science.
The full ensemble work will be premiered on 7th June at Colyer-Fergusson Hall, Canterbury, performed by University of Kent Chamber Choir and ensemble, with Anna Phoebe on solo violin and synths. The 40 minute performance will be accompanied by a film made from the BioScientific research images.
Anna Phoebe has a long standing career as a violinist and has performed with multi-platinum selling artists on top stages and concert halls throughout the world. She currently works as composer for the Royal Ballet School; as violinist for Nitin Sawhney; and is one half of instrumental duo AVA, who are releasing their debut album in 2019 with One Little Indian Records.
