Tansy Davies

English composer born in 1973. With a background as a horn player, electric guitarist and vocalist, Davies studied composition with Simon Bainbridge at the Guildhall School of Music & Drama and with Simon Holt at Royal Holloway. In 2004 Davies’s neon, a gritty collage of twisted modernist funk written for the Composers Ensemble, quickly became her calling card and continues to be performed internationally. In 2015, Davies featured in the Evening Standard’s ‘Progress 1000’ list of the UK’s most influential people. She lives in Rochester and is an Associate Professor of Composition at the Royal Academy of Music, London.[1]
