Edward Wright (1980-    )

Edward Wright, composerEdward Wright was born in Buckinghamshire, England 1980. He is currently studying for a PhD in music with Andrew Lewis at Bangor University, where he has been a Parry Williams scholar and teaches music technology. His work is mainly focused toward the electro-acoustic end of the musical spectrum, although he writes for and plays real instruments as well. He performs on violin, viola and voice, as well as laptop: and works with a number of school/student groups promoting performance of both older and more modern music. Recent highlights include a mention in the 2008 Prix Bourges for his piece Con-chords, a number of commissions, a London premiere with his piece Polarities, a two day sound installation piece in Conwy castle, airplay on BBC Radio 1 and S4C television, and signing to a record label. Wright lives in North Wales (U.K.) with Emma, their daughter Alena (18 months old and the time of writing) Ben the dog and Bess the cat.
