Harry Perry

Harry was born in the mid 80's and brought up on the music of Ravi Shankar, Vaughan-Williams and The Corries. After learning the basics of music from the Trumpet he may have accidentally discovered Rock music and taught himself all the key band instruments in an attempt to become a latter day David Bowie. This love of music continued with his musical studies at Bangor University where he focused on Popular, Classical and Electroacoustic forms of composition.

Harry left Bangor with a 1st class honours degree and the Parry-Williams prize for composition, he was also lucky enough to have pieces workshopped by Ensemble Cymru and the BBC National Orchestra of Wales. Needless to say, by this point Music was the only path Harry could see for himself so he went on to continue his studies with an MMus in Acoustic Composition at Goldsmiths College, London. He is currently researching his PhD in Composition at Bangor University.

Harry has studied under Guto Puw, Pwyll ap Sion, Andrew Lewis and Roger Redgate. He composes in many styles and is influenced by all kinds of music. Previous works include and hour long song cycle based on the deconstruction of 'Spitfires' by Chris Wood, a non-ballet called Ballerine and a cycle of David Nash poems for Soprano.

Harry is currently working on a book of piano music but is available for commissions.
