12 March 2018

Rayfield Allied is delighted to welcome on to its roster composer and turntablist Shiva Feshareki.

Winner of the 2017 BASCA British Composer Award for Innovation, Shiva is an experimental composer, radio presenter and turntablist of British Iranian heritage.  Her work explores the sound of electricity through a wide range of practises and collaborative processes incorporating classical methodology. You can find out more on her website here.

In 2017, Shiva performed with her turntables at Montreal’s Mutek festival and at London’s Tate Modern gallery as part of a series curated by NTS Radio, the station on which she hosts her monthly show ‘New Forms’.

Most recently, in ‘GABA-analogue’ (2017), Shiva employed space as a compositional tool to create a surround-sound orchestra inside London’s Printworks nightclub performed by the London Contemporary Orchestra, while a different form of the composition was presented at Musikhuset, Aarhus in Denmark with the Aarhus Symphony Orchestra.

Upcoming projects include large-scale acoustic compositions as well as performances at PLX (Tjaro, Sweden), Hyperreality (Vienna), Nikolaj Kunsthall (Copenhagen), Skissernas Museum (Lund, Sweden), Resolution (London) and the Southbank Centre (London). She is also directing a residency for emerging artists as part of the Brighter Sound: Both Sides Now initiative.

Shiva is represented worldwide by Ben Rayfield.
