We are proud to present some of our most distinguished women composers. Their works enrich our societies and create new paths for the development of art music.
ASHLEY FURE has recently been awarded a Pulitzer Prize, Guggenheim Fellowship and the Rome Prize.
Born 1982 is an American composer of acoustic and electroacoustic concert music as well as multimedia installation art.
Her work explores the kinetic source of sound, bringing focus to the muscular act of music making and the chaotic behaviors of raw acoustic matter.
Winner of the 2014 Kranichsteiner Music Prize at Darmstadt, Fure also recieved the 2014 Busoni Prize from the Akademie der Künste in Berlin, a 2013 Fulbright Fellowship to France, a 2013 Impuls International Composition Prize, and the 2012 Darmstadt Stipendienpreis.
NORIKO BABA: Born 1972 in Japan, Noriko BABA studied composition at the Tokyo National University of Fine Arts and Music, the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique et de Danse de Paris, and Computermusic at IRCAM. She has been the recipient of numerous grants and awards, including Prix Georges Wildenstein of Académie des Beaux-Arts de l’Institut de France, scholarship as a member of “Casa de Velázquez” in 2006-2008 and a residence fellowship “Villa Kujoyama” in 2012 from French Goverment.
GEORGIA SPIROPOULOS: Her work is characterized by a composition “inside the sound” but also by her interest on temporality and form. She explores ideas about orality, transmission and perception, and the ubiquity of orality in musical text and performance. Born 1965 in Greece, in 1996 she moved to Paris to study composition, electro-acoustic & computer music with Philippe Leroux and form analysis with Michael Lévinas. Her music is influenced by the 20th century music, traditional music, but also by avant-rock, free improvisation, interdisciplinary artists, performance art and turntablism.
Patricia Alessandrini’s works – mostly incorporating live electronics and interactive multimedia elements – actively engage with the concert music repertoire, and issues of representation, interpretation, perception and memory, often in the context of social and political issues. She holds two PhDs, from Princeton and the Sonic Arts Research Centre respectively. She was Composer-in-residence of the Soundscape Festival (Italy) in 2010, ICElab composer with the International Contemporary Ensemble in 2012-13, and in residency with the Ensemble InterContemporain for the Sound Kitchen series at the Gaîté lyrique in 2015-6.
