Brahim Kerkour


Brahim Kerkour is an Anglo-Moroccan composer based in London.  His music focuses on the sensory experience of listening.  Composing within the context of aural culture, he’s committed to researching kinetic and tactile sound materials, as well as their role in sculpting mental, corporeal and acoustic spaces for reflection and calm.  He was awarded the George Butterworth Prize for “In circulation” which was composed for the Manchester Camerata as part of a Sound and Music Embedded residence (2011-12), and premiered at Bridgewater Hall.  Recent international concerts and broadcasts of his music include ECLAT Festival (Stuttgart), MaerzMusik Festival (Berlin), MATA Festival (New York), Contempuls Festival (Prague), France Musique, Deutschlandradio Kultur, and ABC Australia.
