SUNDAY 24 SEPTEMBER - 8:00 PM
Hannah Peel is a multi-talented Northern Irish artist, composer, producer and broadcaster.
This September, Hannah visits Turner Sims to perform her Mercury Prize short-listed album Fir Wave. Her sound uses a blend of synthesisers, electronics, classical orchestral work and hand punched music boxes. Fir Wave makes connections and new patterns that mirror the Earth’s ecological cycles through music.
She explains, ‘The specialist library label KPM, gave me permission to reinterpret the original music of the celebrated 1972 KPM 1000 series: Electrosonic, the music of Delia Derbyshire and the Radiophonic Workshop.’
Hannah’s previous projects include Awake But Always Dreaming, an ode to her grandmother’s mind as she lived with dementia; and Mary Casio: Journey to Cassiopeia scored for synthesisers and a 30 piece colliery brass band.
Some of Hannah’s latest TV and film work includes music for Sky’s 7-part series The Midwich Cuckoos and the new Netflix film Rogue Agent. Her soundtrack to TV psychological thriller The Deceived won a 2022 Royal Television Society NI award and Music Producer’s Guild Best UK original Score Recording of 2021. Her score for Game Of Thrones: The Last Watch was Emmy-Nominated.
Hannah regularly collaborates with Paul Weller. Her work with the Modfather includes scoring orchestral arrangements for his shows and a live album recorded at London’s Royal Festival Hall. She contributed arrangements on his recent number one albums: On Sunset and Fat Pop.
In 2022, Hannah released The Unfolding with Paraorchestra, the world’s only disabled and non-disabled integrated orchestra. It went straight to No 1 in the UK Classical Charts. She recently won a Music Producers Guild award for her work on the album.
Hannah is also a regular presenter on the BBC Radio 3 show, Night Tracks.
A stroke of genius… an immensely reassuring piece of work, a reminder of how small we are in the bigger picture. Music OMH
