James Joslin




James Joslin (b.1987) is a composer and sound artist based in London. He studied music under Simon Emmerson at De Montfort University where his focus was on the merger of acoustic and electronic sound-worlds in ‘mixed music’. In 2012 he received funding from the Daphne Oram Trust to attend Dartington International Summer School and was commended by the Toby Moores Creative Thinking Awards for his innovative approach to sculpture in his sound installation Clockwork Études 1-8. His compositions are regularly performed across four continents with notable performances at Klavier-Festival Ruhr, Singapore International Festival of Art and Foro Internacional de Música Nueva in Mexico, by musicians including Phyllis Chen, Daria Iossifova and Kathleen Supové. Having frequently worked with performers such as Margaret Leng Tan, a leading exponent of John Cage’s music, James’ compositions are often experimental in nature. For example, in 2014’s Deus ex Machina electric currents were sent down the strings of a piano to create synthesised notes sympathetic to the vibrating strings. These explorations of an instrument’s physical characteristics are typical of James’ work. As a former member and contributor of John Richards’ Dirty Electronics Ensemble, James has performed a large number of concerts in the UK with several notable collaborators of varying styles including Chris Carter, Keith Rowe and Anna Meredith. James currently works for the London Sinfonietta, a world renowned contemporary classical chamber orchestra.
