Claudia Molitor is a composer/artist whose work draws on traditions of music and sound practices but also extends to video, performance and fine art. Her work often becomes a site where conventions of music notation and performance, and hierarchies of listening and seeing are explored. Running through her practice is a curiosity in un-noticed and fragile sounds, structures and thoughts. Considering the possibilities presented by the spaces between notions of artistic disciplines is also central to her work.
Claudia’s work is regularly commissioned, performed and broadcast throughout Europe, working for example with hcmf//, Wien Modern, London Sinfonietta, Royal Philharmonic Society, Spor, Tete a Tete, BBC Proms, Tate Britain, Electra Productions, Sonica, NMC Recordings, Spitalfields Music, Ensemble Resonanz and Cryptic.
Some recent work includes Remember me… a miniature deskOpera produced by Cryptic that toured throughout 2012 and 2013 to hcmf//, sound, NovemberMusic and Sonic-a, New Directions and Spitalfields Music.
