Emily Peasgood is a composer and sound artist. She creates research-led music and sound works for galleries and public spaces, ranging from large-scale community events to intimate sound installations.

About

Her work explores the value and perception of sound and music, connecting people with environments that are forgotten or ignored; and is often rooted in political realities.

The artist views her work as pushing the boundaries of what music and sound is believed to be, from the venue in which it’s experienced to the people who perform it. The work is multi-disciplinary in that she collaborates with writers, visual artists and sign language interpreters to create an inclusivity that engages people in more ways than through the mediums of sound and music alone.

Recent works include Lifted, 2016, performed at Turner Contemporary, Margate, ASDA supermarket Folkestone, and Southbank Centre London. Crossing Over 2016, a live composition and surround sound installation for community choir, commissioned by Turner Contemporary, and The Light At The End Of The Tunnel commissioned by Janet Oates for the six-soprano vocal ensemble Philomel, due to premier on 2 November 2017 in the Brunel Shaft at the Brunel Museum Thames Tunnel.

Emily was born in Grimsby, Lincolnshire in 1981 and lives in Thanet, Kent.
