Angharad Davies is a violinist whose work is situated in the complex intersection of improvised and composed music. She is an active performer in contemporary, improvisation and experimental music both as a soloist and within ensembles. Her classical background (BMus; P.G.C.E; postgraduate study at R.N.C.M. ) lead her to further violin study with Charles-Andre Linale in Dusseldorf, Germany and subsequently Howard Davis in London. Her studies with these two eminent violinists inspired her own teaching practice.Since making London her base in 2002 she has developed a specific approach to the violin, extending the sounding possibilities of the instrument by attaching and applying objects to the strings or by sounding unexpected parts of the instrument’s body. Her pieces reveal an empirical approach towards musical instruments. She is dedicated to exploring and expanding sound production on the violin.
