Claudia Molitor is a composer whose work articulates a dynamic pluralism which draws upon the tradition of classical music but also extends across contemporary art practices, such as video art, installation art, sound art and visual art. In her practice, the score often becomes a site of exploration in which the conventions of notation, the qualification of sonic phenomenon and the historical hierarchies of sound are interrogated.
Claudia’s work is regularly performed and broadcast throughout Europe and has been performed at festivals such as Wien Modern, Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival, Ecat, the VI Festival de Musica Contemporania de Girona, the ÖBV Grabenfest, Sonic Explorations at Kingsplace and the Wire Magazine’s “Off the Page” festival. She has been commissioned, amongst others, by the London Sinfonietta, hcmf//, the BBC, Sound and Music and the Royal Philharmonic Society. Recordings have been included in releases on the Jerwood Series, NMC Recordings, ORF 1 recordings and Sub Rosa. She is currently working on an opera for Cryptic and //hcmf in 2012.
She has worked collaboratively with many artists, choreographers and video artists and is one part of the performance art inspired duo Lemon Drizzle with Sarah Nicolls. She is co-founder and festival director of Soundwaves Festival, a sound focussed multi-arts festival which takes place annually in Brighton in July.
