Shiva Feshareki is an internationally acclaimed experimental composer, NTS radio DJ and turntablist. Her diverse output explores acoustics, perspective and the sound of electricity through wide ranging practises that incorporate classical methodology. In 2017, she was honoured with the British Composer Award for Innovation from BASCA. As well as the development of studio works, 2018 saw a host of stunning performances from Feshareki across Europe including VAC Moscow, BBC Proms and London Jazz Festival.
Her compositional work for orchestra is equally transformative, exploring the physicality of sound in relation to light, sculpture and movement with recent performances with the BBC Concert Orchestra, London Contemporary Orchestra, Aarhus Symphony Orchestra and Orchestre Nationale de Lyon . ’GABA-analogue’ (2017) employed space as a compositional tool to create a surround-sound orchestra inside London’s Printworks nightclub. An alternative form of the composition was also presented as 'O' at Musikhuset, Denmark; both pieces engaged with sound as both a ‘sculpture in space’ and as a ‘medium bending through time’.
