Anna Phoebe is a violinist and composer working on cross-genre collaborative projects, with poetry, dance, film and art installations.

 

Between Worlds is Anna’s first choral and ensemble piece. It is a music and science collaboration, which incorporates a 40 minute work for choir, solo violin, string ensemble, synthesiser and percussion, written in response to spectacular visual imagery provided by the research at the School of BioSciences, University of Kent.  Between Worlds uses electronic soundscapes created from field recordings from the BioScience laboratories. The research is funded by Cancer Research UK and Between Worlds has received funding from PRS Foundation.

 

Anna works as composer for the Royal Ballet School and has taken Between Worlds to the school for the music and visuals to be used in improvisation and choreography workshops. She has also composed original music for several projects with the students. Anna has recently written the music for WWF Climate Disaster advert, as well as scoring films including Ethel (Miriam Margolyes), and animated film Harriet and The Matches (Cillian Murphy and Bernice Stegers).  Anna recently collaborated with artist Nicola Durvasula, whose film was premiered at the Rietburg Museum in Zurich. She is currently scoring soundscapes set to ‘England Poems from a School’  - poetry written by refugee children living in the UK.

 

As a performer Anna has toured throughout the world, both as a solo artist and with multi-platinum selling bands including Roxy Music and Jethro Tull.  She has performed as solo violinist on top international stages and festivals across the world including USA arenas, Royal Albert Hall, Royal Festival Hall, Glastonbury, Fuji Rock Festival and Montreux Jazz Festival, and supported Bob Dylan at the Rock Legends Festival in Poland.
