Shiva Feshareki -

Winner of the 2017 BASCA British Composer Award for Innovation, is an experimental classical composer, radio presenter and turntablist of British-Iranian heritage. Her work explores the sound of electricity through a wide range of practises and collaborative processes.

Turntabling is also a signature element of her compositional work, which explores the physicality of sound in relation to light and movement. Most recently, in ‘GABA-analogue’, Shiva employed space as a compositional tool to create a surround-sound orchestra inside London’s Printworks nightclub. Shiva continues to work on site-specific compositions, while refining her live remixing skills and love of improvisation through performance.
