Eden Lonsdale is a composer based between London and Berlin.
His music focuses mainly on exploring the inter-connectedness of harmony and timbre. Often using very limited materials, his dense and immersive sound-worlds attempt to draw the ear into the smallest details and hope to inspire the listener’s self-guided exploration into the music’s manifold layers.
He has written concert music for and with soloists such as Satoko Inoue, Toby Hughes, Anton Lukoszevieze and Heather Roche as well as ensembles including EXAUDI, Apartment House, Plus-Minus Ensemble, Orkest de Ereprijs, IPSE, Orchester im Treppenhaus, Ensemble Intercontemporain, Barcelona Modern Ensemble, RIOT Ensemble, Roadrunner Trio and ICTUS.
His pieces have been performed at festivals such as EstOvest (Torino), Blurred Edges (Hamburg), Distat Terra (Patagonia), The Dutch Harp Festival (Utrecht) and the London Culture Mile as well as broadcast on BBC Radio3’s ‚New Music Show‘.
He studied composition at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama (London) with Malcolm Singer, Cassandra Miller and Julian Anderson and at the Kunstuniversität Graz with Klaus Lang.
