She specializes in music for acoustic instrument and electronics, with a particular interest in the construction of space, the perception of sound and the human experience of listening.
Georgia holds a BSc in Physics with Music and an MSc in Digital Composition and Performance, both from the University of Edinburgh. In summer 2014 Georgia will take part in the Sound and Music Higher Education Programme working on a piece for tuba and electronics with Oren Marshall.

“I’m so happy and honoured to have been selected for this award. Thank you so much to everyone involved in organising it and to everyone who has supported me in getting to this point. Daphne Oram has always been a hero of mine so I’m really proud to receive an award in her name. I’m looking forward to meeting members of the New BBC Radiophonic Workshop and continuing to develop my music for acoustic instruments and electronics.”
