Samuel Bordoli

Samuel Bordoli became the first composer to create site-specific compositions for the Monument and Tower Bridge when his Live Music Sculptures were featured in the 2012 City of London Festival. His work for St Paul’s Cathedral, Live Music Sculpture 3, was performed five times during 2013 and subsequently shortlisted for a British Composer Award. His work has been described by the Observer as “working wonders with public acoustics” and “beautiful and ethereal”. Other recent premieres have included GRIND, commissioned by PRS for Music Foundation, Fire, Silver, Gold commissioned for the United Guilds Service at St Paul’s Cathedral and two operas for Tête à Tête, Amerika based on the novel by Kafka and New World, a collaboration with Mark Ravenhill. His piece Eta Carinae Nebula was performed by BCMG in the 'Boulez in Birmingham' festival. His work has been released on NMC Records and broadcast on BBC Radio 3, BBC World Service and ITV. Samuel held the Mendelssohn Scholarship and the Manson Fellowship at the Royal Academy of Music with support from the Countess of Munster Musical Trust, RVW Trust and AHRC.
