Composition & Contemporary Music


www.ram.ac.uk/composition


Laura Bowler ‘It’s hard to pick out just one reason why I chose the Academy. I get to hear everything I write, I’ve been able to work with professional ensembles and with tutors who have international reputations, and of course London provides huge opportunities.


My work usually has a strong theatrical element, and I’ve worked with a lot of different student performers. The London Sinfonietta and Kreutzer Quartet have both premièred my music as part of Academy initiatives, and I’ve spent a week in Denmark with the Esbjerg Ensemble. I hadn’t really considered working with animation or electronics until they were suggested to me here, so it’s great to get that chance to think in new directions.


I’m now in the second year of a PhD here, working with contemporary culture in musical theatre and opera.’
