Dominic Murcott is a composer, percussionist, curator and educator based in London. Much of his work combines acoustic instruments with computer work and other media. He has a continuing interest in work that is personalised for specific performers and has created acoustic/electronic pieces for trumpeter Noel Langley, percussionist Joby Burgess, clarinetist Joan Enric Lluna, harpist Sioned Williams and the Elysian String Quartet among many others.
2013 marked the tenth anniversary of his becoming Head of Composition at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance. The Composition Department has become renown for its inventive ‘fine arts’ approach to music making and the integration of traditional and sonic arts within the curriculum.
He has taken an unusual path to his current position, starting out as a self taught musician, his early career included playing drums with no-wave pioneers Blurt and composing for the highly successful V-Tol Dance Company throughout their ten-year history. Changing from drums to vibraphone he became a member of art-pop band The High Llamas and has played on records by many influential artists including Stereolab and Pavement. His PhD is from Goldsmiths College, University of London and explores the relationship between computers, performers and film as well as devising methods of live score generation.
In April 2012 he curated the critically acclaimed festival ‘Impossible Brilliance: The Music of Conlon Nancarrow’ at London’s Southbank Centre, contributing among other things new Nancarrow arrangements for the London Sinfonietta. After several years of research he has become one a small number of Nancarrow experts and has throughout the UK as well as in Japan, the US and Mexico City on the subject.
