Cevanne Horrocks-Hopayian is an award-winning composer of chamber, orchestral, electro-acoustic, vocal and theatre works. She also gave her first solo BBC Proms performance live for Radio 3 in 2019.
Cevanne performs with her voice, electronics and lever harp, often with custom-built midi-controllers such as the legendary Sonic Bonnet, developed with Crewdson and Jodie Cartman. Her debut album with Crewdson, BRACE, is out now on Accidental Records and was shortlisted for a British Composer award in 2018. In recent years she has performed at LSO St Luke's, Union Chapel, Handel House and Aldeburgh Festival.
Listen! is proud to present the world premiere of Cevanne's new work, inspired by the groundbreaking sounds created by celebrated electronic music pioneer Delia Derbyshire at the BBC Radiophonic Workshop. Like Delia before her, Cevanne is an alumna of Girton College, University of Cambridge where she is now the Mary Amelia Cummins Harvey Visiting Fellow.
'Combining a clear and perfectly placed folk delivery, stylised gestures and an array of field recordings and live electronica, her set had an emotional directness that drew the audience into her universe.'
