Biography

Nina Whiteman is a composer and singer based in Manchester with a growing reputation as an engaging British compositional talent. Her recent music has drawn primarily on scientific source materials, particularly Vera Rubin’s research in astronomy. During 2013-14 commissions included a new work for Psappha (The Galaxy Rotation Problem), and a collaboration with Ealing Youth Orchestra (Dark Matter Sounding). These works act as sonic maps of humanly unreachable locations, where distant galaxies and imaginary particles are encountered by audiences. Previous commissions have come from ensembles such as Manchester Camerata, Quatuor Danel, and TOEAC. Nina’s work has been broadcast on BBC Radio 3, commissioned by the Adopt-a-Composer scheme (PRS for Music Foundation/Sound and Music/Making Music), and featured at major venues and festivals including the Bridgewater Hall, Cheltenham Music Festival, Kettle’s Yard, Media City, and the RNCM. Nina is co-director of Trio Atem, and frequently engages with experimental interdisciplinary projects as a composer-singer.
