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.
As a composer she has balanced a diverse portfolio of commissions, ranging from the LSO’s Panufnik Scheme, a Celtic harp duo with Ruth Wall (Goldfrapp) for BBC Radio 3 and a bi-lingual play for Swedish National Radio. She is composer in residence at Handel House and is inspired by openness to societies and styles of all kinds – be they Punk, Renaissance or Maqam.
As an agile performer Cevanne has collaborated with actor Jessica Hynes, members of Babyshambles, Manu Delago (Björk’s percussionist), electronic inventor Crewdson, MOBO award winner Zoe Rahman, and ensembles within the London Symphony Orchestra.
Jessica Hynes wrote ‘Peekaboogie’ and I arranged it for her to sing with the Big Ears Band, which is on iTunes here
You can also buy an actual CD! It comes with a poster of my lyrics and doodles and two Ear Stickers
If you would like to donate to this project and the next, I will compose a line of music out of your name and send it to you.
Coming soon – The Evolution of Eve EP. Featuring Manu Delago

I blogged and vlogged excitedly for Handel House as their composer in residence. You can view those here. As my residency comes to an end I will be blogging from this site.
