Alex Groves is a British composer and curator working across contemporary classical and electronic music, supported by Arts Council England and The Open Fund. His work blends classical instruments, ambient textures and live-processed electronics to create uncanny soundworlds where the line between acoustic and electronic, real and imagined, becomes blurred.
Alongside composing, Groves runs SOLO—a unique platform for leading contemporary classical soloists to explore the music they love in an intimate setting. In 2019, he released his debut EP, and other recent work includes commissions for the London Contemporary Orchestra, Crash Ensemble, operas for English Touring Opera and ERRATICA, and residencies with Handel & Hendrix in London, Snape Maltings, and the New Amsterdam Composers Lab. His music has been presented at the Barbican Centre, Sage Gateshead, Royal Opera House, V&A museum, Union Chapel, National Theatre Studio, King’s Place and Nonclassical, broadcast on NTS Radio, BBC Radio 3 and BBC 6 Music, and released on Bedroom Community.
