Cameron Graham is a composer and artist currently pursuing a PhD between the Universities of Southampton and Bath Spa.

I am researching and practicing different ways of staging the creative process in music. My research also explores how this pursuit may be considered through the lens of the anthropological concept of liminality.

He studied music at Brunel University (BA Hons, 1st Class), and at the Royal College of Music (Mmus, Distinction). His compositional work explores the tensions between the composed and the installed, grappling from project to project with questions around ritual, intoxication, the in-between and liminality - striving to accentuate an immediacy between the making and receiving of sound.

His written work has been published by the Cambridge University Press Journal, TEMPO, and the online PPE publishing house, Inky Needles.

His work has been commissioned and performed by the Royal Scottish National Orchestra (UK), the Brussels Philharmonic Orchestra (BE), L’Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France (FR), the Mozarteum Orchestra Salzburg (AU), the Moscow Contemporary Music Ensemble (RU), The United Instruments of Lucilin (LX), the GBSR Duo (UK), and others.

He is delighted to be funded throughout his doctoral candidature by the SWWDTP, through which he is studying between the universities of Southampton and Bath Spa. His research and practice currently spans experimental musical practice, installation, creativity studies and anthropology – this with a focus on the question of how the creative process itself can be staged as the finally presented work.

Cameron is an associate lecturer at the University of Surrey, teaching the masters module in studio-assisted composition. In the 2020 year, Cameron will be a Styria-Artist-in-Residence in Austria, completing a large-scale work for the Schallfeld Ensemble Graz.
