Peter Wiegold is an innovative musician who creatively explores the relationship between composer, music director and performer.
Peter Wiegold is a leading innovator on the British music scene, consistently seeking to explore alternative forms and processes of music making. His compositions often mix traditional and modern instruments and electronics, and he has worked with various national and international ensembles. He is Director of the regular performance night Club Inégales and its associated ensemble notes inégales. Since 2003 he has been Professor of Composition and Director of the Institute of Composing at Brunel University.
Peter Wiegold often directs (from the keyboard) ‘notes inégales’, an ensemble that includes players equally committed to improvisation. He has provided much of their material, from fully composed pieces to ‘backbone scores’ allowing scope for improvisation, such as his William Blake cycle ‘Damn Braces’, a recomposition of Miles Davis’ Bitches Brew.
