Anna Clyne


Anna Clyne (b.1980) is a composer of acoustic and electro-acoustic music, combining resonant soundscapes with propelling textures that weave, morph and collide in dramatic explosions. Her work, which includes collaborative projects with cutting-edge choreographers, film-makers, visual artists and musicians, has been commissioned and performed worldwide. Her music has been composed for and programmed by such artists as Björk, Martin Scorsese, Alex Ross, Esa-Pekka Salonen, ETHEL and BalletX. She is based in Brookyln, New York and her music is published by Boosey & Hawkes. Born in London and raised in the UK, Anna Clyne’s first instrument was a piano with randomly missing keys. As she began to find her way across the keyboard, she simultaneously began to compose. At the age of eleven she wrote and performed her first fully notated piece for flute and piano. She continued to compose on and off, but it was when she moved to Edinburgh in 1998, then to Ontario in 2000 and finally to New York in 2002 that these three richly artistic environments brought her music to life though a myriad of people, coincidences, adventures, twists and turns and collaborations. Anna Clyne is the recipient of several awards. These include five consecutive ASCAP Plus Awards which merited her recent catalogs of work for their “unique prestige value”, a Clutterbuck Award from the University of Edinburgh, awards from Meet the Composer, The American Music Center, The Foundation for Contemporary Arts...
