ABOUT

Cevanne is a daring Anglo-Armenian composer, singer & harper from Suffolk.

Her work is grounded in the British isles – digging deep into their rich soil, to find artefacts which one would not always imagine to be native.

Cevanne Horrocks-Hopayian was recently the composer-in-residence with the London Symphony Orchestra at the National Trust property 575 Wandsworth Road (2015 – 2017), generously supported by LSO Patron Susie Thomson, and she was previously resident at Handel & Hendrix in London (2012 – 2014).

Cevanne has balanced a diverse portfolio, with commissions ranging from the London Jazz Festival, BBC Radio 3, and a bilingual music drama for Swedish National Radio (Prix Marulic finalist 2015). She has recently written for Trish Clowes’ 2017 album and Emulsion Sinfonietta; and for Clarence Adoo’s latest HighNote technology, thanks to the Helen Hamlyn Trust.

She is currently transcribing a song for the upcoming book of visual artists JocJonJosch; interpreting Hendrix’s wood-chip wallpaper with leading jazz musicians Calum Gourlay and Chris Montague thanks to the work of artist Maya Ramsay and a PRSF award; and completing a folk album with Crewdson using found sounds and wearable tech inventions.

Cevanne would like to thank the university of Cambridge for her studies with a scholarship, and for developmental support from the Arts Council, the PRSF, LSO Soundhub, and Serious Ltd through Take Five, with help from Help Musicians and the Jerwood Fund.
