Fraz Ireland (www.frazdotcom.com) is a Manchester-based composer and conceptual artist whose work often explores a provocative and sometimes jovial relationship with their audience. Their work often incorporates text and video elements and can sometimes be found lurking in the corridors between liminal spaces. Engaging with well established traditions, including, but not limited to, dining, digging and destroying, Fraz’s work has the potential to appeal to everyone.
They were a Britten-Pears Young Artist in 2020 and have worked with ensembles including the Riot Ensemble, BBC singers and the Ligeti Quartet. In 2016 they were awarded the Royal Philharmonic Society Duet prize for composers under 18 and appointed Wigmore Hall Apprentice composer-in-residence. Last year they were the video editor for a surreal lockdown-inspired digital opera — No Room No Room No Room — which was produced with Opera Harmony and broadcast by OperaVision.
