Angèle David-Guillou

London-based French composer Angèle David-Guillou makes audacious music that explores the interaction between rhythm and melody, structure and emotion, permanence and change. Writing for the piano, string and saxophone ensembles, voices and most recently the pipe organ, David-Guillou is particularly interested in how melodies create, rather than them emanate from, rhythm and structure. Influenced by Baroque music, Central European harmonies, ambient music and Minimalism, she weaves hypnotic compositions whose mutable internal architecture and shifting melodic accentuations immediately draw the listener in.
