Ash Madni - Composer
Composer Ash Madni, Twitter Id @amadni, has drawn on a lifetime of exotic influences and experiences from the East and West to create his latest compositions. Ash has multiple collaborations with both film directors as well as musicians and ensembles. He has recently been appointed composer in residence at the presitigius International composers festival in Hastings in 2018 Ash’s evocative music explores a new tonal, easy listening fusion style which was well received in February 2012 when his ‘Sounds from the Bazaar’ was performed by the Ten Tors Orchestra, conducted by Simon Ible, in the Peninsula Arts Contemporary Music Festival. “Eminently listenable,” wrote Philip R Buttall in The Herald, Plymouth, praising Ash’s “vivid sound picture, where ethnic influences blended seamlessly with instrumental effects.”
The heady cacophony of the bazaar, calls to prayer and Indian serod and sitar ragas formed the soundtrack to Ash’s early childhood in the Middle East. He says: “Until I moved to the UK in the 1970’s I had never heard classical music, and soon became fascinated with the possibilities of the fusion of eastern and western styles.” A self-taught musician and composer, Ash has built up an impressive catalogue of over 30 compositions and has some notable followers around the world. His first collection, ‘Mystic Thoughts’ recorded by the Monzi Quartet, was released last year, and the actor Simon Callow is a fan. He says: “Ash Madni’s Mystic Thoughts is a must listen.”
