WildKat PR are thrilled to welcome Emily Howard to its artist roster. A young British composer, with an Oxford degree in Mathematics and Computation, whose (already) varied body of work has taken the classical music world by storm. The musical structure of her compositions is influenced by techniques derived from mathematical principles and her themes are wide-ranging. Whilst ‘Magnetite’ and ‘Calculus of the Nervous System’ are informed by science, poetry, psychology and history, her latest work, the witty mini-opera Zátopek!, commissioned by New Music 20×12 for the London 2012 Cultural Olympiad, was inspired by a Czech long-distance runner by the same name.
Watch out for her work ‘Calculus of the Nervous System’, her BBC Prom debut, on August 21st 2012.
