Biography

Dom Bouffard is a London-born composer and performer. In the early 2000s he was a member of UK rock bands, Sona Fariq and Queen Adreena. 

His work increasingly focuses on the electric guitar as the primary sound source for composition and performance, employing prepared instruments, extended techniques and other manipulations while seeking to honour what he sees as the instrument's unique 'outlaw' status - a spirit and mythology which has been passed down from Flamenco, through Blues, Country and Rock'n'Roll, to Punk and Noise Music.

His projects include contemporary dance, avant-garde theatre, film, video, installation and radio art. As well as strong, ongoing, creative partnerships with choreographer Marianna Kavallieratos and theatre director Charles Chemin, he has collaborated with many respected artists including Robert Wilson, Lou Reed, Rufus Wainwright, Coco Rosie, Budgie and Daniel Hope.

In 2017 he was awarded an MMus Creative Practice from Goldsmiths University of London.

'Dom’s range of music is extraordinary. For me, he is one of the mos​t interesting musical talents we have today.' (Robert Wilson)
