Natasha Barrett

Natasha Barrett (UK, 1972) began working seriously with electroacoustic composition during a master’s degree in analysis and electroacoustic composition, studying with Jonty Harrison at the University of Birmingham (UK).

This study also gave her the opportunity to work with Beast (2) (Birmingham ElectroAcoustic Sound Theatre) which has greatly influenced her current work, and lead on to a doctoral degree in composition supervised by Denis Smalley, awarded in 1998 at City University (London, UK). Both degrees were funded by the Humanities section of the British Academy. In the same year, a grant from Norges forskningsråd (The Research Council of Norway) enabled her to work as a resident composer at NoTAM (Norsk nettverk for Teknologi, Akustikk og Musikk / Norwegian network for Technology, Acoustics and Music) in Oslo (Norway). Afterwards, she worked for one year as a senior lecturer at the music conservatory in Tromsø (Norway).

She is now a freelance composer and teacher, based in Oslo. In her spare time, she is active in NICEM (Norsk seksjon av International Confederation for Electroacoustic Music / Norwegian section of the International Confederation for Electroacoustic Music), an organization whose main activity focuses on the performance of electroacoustic music in Norway and abroad.

Her compositional output consists of works for instruments and live electronics, sound installations, dance, theatre, and animation projects, but all activity is rooted in her work with acousmatic tape composition, which features most strongly amongst her creations.
