Resonate: Deep by Shiori Usui

About the piece

‘Deep’ is a fully immersive audio-visual experience. The audience is taken on a voyage to the very bottom of the ocean as the composer imagines what things might sound like at such murky depths.

About the composer

Originally from Japan, Shiori Usui is a BBC Proms commissioned composer and improviser based in Scotland. The Times newspaper described her as a composer with “entirely individual ears” after the successful premiere of the piece “Liya-pyuwa” for piano quintet at Wigmore Hall, London in 2006.

Shiori has produced works in radical instrumental music, and has worked with motion capturing sensors and biophysical technology. Many of her compositions are inspired by the sounds of the human body, the deep sea, and many other weird and wonderful organisms living on Earth.

Championed by the Birmingham Contemporary Music Group
