FRANCES SHELLEY


COMPOSER / improviser / pianist

 

 

I am a composer / improvisor / pianist based in East Anglia in the UK.  Over the years, my musical interests and experimentations have spanned many genres, always coming back to my first love, the piano.  Today, my focus is on composing contemporary classical piano and electronic music for publishing, sync and live performance;  my passion is for real-time live improvisation, responding to a variety of environments by creating music in the moment.  Recent commissions include collaborations with artists at the Nevill Keating gallery in London, De La Warr gallery in Sussex, the Aldeburgh Beach Lookout tower, and The National Trust's Sutton Hoo site.  My most recent installation--involving a solar powered grand piano, several computers and three 15-foot-high tree sculptures on Aldeburgh beach--can be seen here: www.seatrees.uk.  

I am fortunate enough to live and record in deep countryside on the Suffolk coast, and am currently developing new work with soundscape artist Matthew Bickerton (www.pianofield.com). I have also recently been listed on the alternative 100 music power list.
