Angharad Davies is a violinist, one at ease in both improvising and composition, with a wide discography as part of varied range of ensembles and groups. She's a specialist in the art of 'preparing' her violin, adding objects or materials to it to extend its sound making properties. Her sensitivity to the sonic possibilities of musical situations and attentiveness to their shape and direction make her one of contemporary music's most fascinating figures. She has performed at the Queen Elizabeth Hall, Tate Modern, the Proms, Music We'd Like to Hear new music series, Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival, El Nicho festival in Mexico where she premiered Eliane Radigue's Occam XXI for solo violin.
