An American composer based in London, Dr Arlene Sierra writes music that takes its impetus from rich sources including military strategy, game theory, Darwinian evolution, and the natural world. Her music has been lauded for its “highly flexible and distinctive style” (The Guardian), and its “remarkable brilliance of colour, rhythmic dexterity and playfulness” (NPR Classical). She is Reader in Composition at Cardiff University.
After the talk, all are invited to attend the performance of one of her works Alleluya (Bitter-Sweet) in Worcester College Chapel during Evensong.
