Caitlin Rowley is a composer, performer and artist whose work explores the boundaries of music, art and text. Characterised by a playful approach to the mundane, her pieces often include a visual element, such as video, mime, or scores which are art objects. Caitlin is a member of experimental composer-performer collective Bastard Assignments, with whom she performs and tours regularly. Her work has been performed at Aldeburgh Festival, hcmf//, SPOR Festival, King’s Place, the Barbican and Southbank Centre, and displayed in galleries including the Royal Academy of Arts.
Help Musicians’ support will be helping me to attend the 2020 Darmstadt Summer Courses in Germany. I will be attending as a composer-participant and will be developing my practice through lessons with influential composers of experimental music, workshops and attending the wide array of concerts available during the course. I plan to make new contacts and work on specific areas of composition and performance that will help me establish my solo performance career over the next few years.
