Edmund Hunt composes instrumental, vocal and electroacoustic music. He came to composition via a degree in early medieval languages and literature, and his composition PhD (completed in 2016, at the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire, UK) investigated creative approaches to early medieval text in contemporary music. His work has been performed by ensembles including CHROMA, The Curious Chamber Players, The London Philharmonic Orchestra, Psappha and The Royal Northern Sinfonia, and by soloists including Mary Wiegold, Chris Redgate and Roderick Williams. In 2014, Edmund’s orchestral piece ‘Argatnél’ was premiered by the London Philharmonic Orchestra at the Queen Elizabeth Hall, London, as part of the LPO’s Leverhulme Young Composers’ Programme. In 2018, he was appointed as the Royal Philharmonic Society/Wigmore Hall Apprentice Composer, resulting in the premiere of a new work for accordion and viola at the Wigmore Hall in June. In April 2018, he started a new role as Postdoctoral Researcher at Royal Birmingham Conservatoire, Birmingham City University. Current research activities include the development of Integra Live electronics for the voice, and composition and live electronics for dance.
