Composer / Performer
Hailing from the North East of England, Elliott Park is a composer of contemporary classical music, specialising in combined acoustic and electroacoustic works.
July 2020 saw Elliott Park’s Skysong premiered as part of the Isolation Songbook project with Helen Charlston, Michael Craddock, and Alexander Soares premiering it and fourteen other new works as part of the City Music Foundation’s online concert series at St Pancras Hotel Clock Tower. Extracts feature on the album Isolation Songbook, released on Delphian Records in 2021.
Other works include a piece for solo bass trombone and live electronics written for, and premiered by, Andrew Fawbert in 2019, described as “haunting, dreamlike, with passages that are barely breathing and others that are almost comical” (The Fine Times Recorder); the short operatic work The Panopticon (2016), premiered in the Old Divinity School of St John’s College, Cambridge; and Sonambulum I (“Inspiration”). Forthcoming collaborations include a song cycle based on the recent work of visual artist Miroslav Pomichal and a mixed media piece with Daniel Shipley of the University of Reading utilising visualisations of turbulent weather systems.
Elliott studied composition and musicology at Durham University with Eric Egan, Nick Collins, and Trevor Wishart. After graduating from Durham, he pursued further study at Queens’ College, Cambridge with Jeremy Thurlow and John Hopkins, latterly specialising in combined acoustic and electroacoustic composition. He began study at the Royal Academy of Music in 2020, studying composition with Tansy Davies.
