The Composers’ Fund: Sohrab Uduman

The Composers’ Fund: Sohrab Uduman

Sohrab Uduman will be developing a number of linked compositions which will explore the wealth of possibilities available from on-the-fly interaction of live performance with live electronics, in particular the extension of conventional combinations of instruments through computer processing of their sounds.

The aim is to create the kind of musically meaningful drama, interactions and exchanges central to traditional chamber music, by the fusion of live performance with computer interaction. The works, for James Wilson, SCAW Duo, and Rarescale Ensemble, will focus on using extended instrumental techniques of instruments and their interaction with digital technology.

Sohrab studied clarinet at Surrey University and composition with Vic Hoyland and Jonty Harrison, at Birmingham University, where he received a PhD in 1993.

Awards include an international prize at the Huddersfield Festival of Contemporary Music, The Bourges International Competition for Electro-acoustic Music, the George Butterworth Award, the Oskar Back Foundation Prize for Young European Composers and the Prix Annelie de Man.

His music has featured at many festivals, including the Oxford Festival of Contemporary Music, The Spitalfields Festival, the Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival, the Cheltenham International Festival of Music, Darmstadt, Britten Festival Brugges and Agora Festival at IRCAM, Paris.

Sohrab said:
I’m delighted to be a recipient of the 2018 Composers’ Fund. This award allows me a period of focussed, creative work and experimentation, and will enable me to realise a suite of linked compositions.
