FRANCES SHELLEY


COMPOSER / improviser / pianist

 

 

I am a composer / improvisor / piano player / based in East Anglia in the UK.  Over the years my interests and experimentations have included practically every genre I could find.   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, and for responding to environments by creating music in the moment. Recent commissions include working 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)
