Anna Meredith

Wednesday 25 November 2020, 12-2pm [online via Minerva]

Anna will be chatting through some of the range of projects she’s worked on in recent years including opening up her work beyond commissioned acoustic/orchestral etc work to include writing albums and performing with her band, writing for film and tv and installation work. She’ll also talk through her approach to writing music and the common steps she takes for writing no matter what the project is (or what ‘genre’ it is though ‘genre’ isn’t really something she thinks about when writing – which is something in itself we might touch on!).

For more information about Anna, please see her website
