About the event

Folkestone New Music presents an exciting evening where Tansy Davies (composer)  and James Fisher (artist) discuss their work in progress with John  Woolrich (composer), accompanied by audio visuals. We’ll then be treated  to a solo set by Tansy from 8.30pm accompanied by James Fisher’s video  projections.

Born out of a fascination with nature and shamanism, and a grinding rhythmic energy, the music of Tansy Davies has been described as both ‘  sleek, hot, earthy’ and ‘transparent, brazenly beautiful’. Her music is  championed by ensembles including New York Philharmonic, Ensemble  Intercontemporain, and Tokyo Symphony Orchestra, and at festivals  including Ultima, Présences, Donuaueschinger Musiktage, and Warsaw Autumn.

Between Worlds, an operatic response to 9/11, was premiered by  English National Opera in 2015, and in 2018 her chamber opera Cave was  premiered with Mark Padmore, Elaine Mitchener, and London Sinfonietta.  She has taught composition at both Royal Academy of Music, London, and  at the Bloomington School of Music, Indiana. Recent projects include  Nightingales: Ultra-Deep Field for Arditti Quartet, Monolith: I Extend  My Arms, for the strings of Britten Sinfonia, and a residency at  Concertgebouw Amsterdam culminating in the ensemble piece Soul Canoe.
