Manchester-based ensemble, Distractfold, is a group of performers, composers and curators all acting out of shared love, passion and interest in the music and culture of our times. Coming from different continents, backgrounds and having received a diverse education, together they create a nexus of ideas and influences which all contribute towards the ensemble’s unique voice and identity. They perform acoustic, mixed and electroacoustic music of their peers, alongside music of the more established composers with whom they have formed close collaborations and friendships.
Nina Whiteman | Composer
Described as ‘beguiling’ (The Guardian), my 2016 composition for the BBC Philharmonic was performed at the Bridgewater Hall and commissioned and broadcast by BBC Radio 3. In 2017, a commission from The Night With… series was heard in Scottish pubs, recorded for radio broadcast, commissioned with funds from Creative Scotland, and featured in M Magazine. Further recent funding success with Arts Council England enabled the commission of House of Mazes for Trio Atem, which is currently touring a range of performances venues across the UK.
