Just to see her dart from one turntable to the next, brandishing and spinning her vinyl discs… was a treat in itself. But the sounds she produced and its interaction with the orchestra’s music – alternately dancing and poised in a trance – were fascinating, and full of an urgency one hears all too rarely in new music.

Shiva Feshareki 

Born in London in 1987 Shiva Feshareki started her career after winning the BBC Proms/Guardian Young Composer of the Year 2004, with her first penned composition. By the age of 21, she won the Royal Philharmonic Society Composition Award, and by the age of 23, she was shortlisted at the British Composer Awards under the Sonic Art category.

Since then, she has worked as a composer, sonic artist, and post-dj turntablist, who has performed at major UK venues such as the Southbank Centre, Royal Albert Hall, Barbican, Roundhouse and Kings Place, and has working relationships with the London Philharmonic Orchestra, London Philharmonia, London Sinfonietta and London Contemporary Orchestra. Additionally, Shiva has worked and toured with musicians ranging from virtuosi Natalie Clein and Mark Van De Wiel, to left-field pop artist/composer Mica Levi, video-gamer/viral-youtube-pioneer Freddie Wong, and sound artists Simon Fisher-Turner and Haroon Mirza. She has had compositions and remixes released on labels such as Nonclassical, NMC and the London Sinfonietta label. She often DJs, and presents, experimental classical music on NTS Radio.

Future concerts include a world premiere by the London Sinfonietta of her large scale work, in collaboration with installation artist Haroon Mirza titled: ‘a surround-sound piece for 8 prepared turntables, 9 instruments, video and LEDs’.
