COMPOSER

 

As a composer and multi-instrumentalist I thrive working in live settings, scoring for 
theatre and installation, collaboration playing a key part in any project. I tend to create

for projects that champion the vulnerable voices in society as well as promoting 

important causes!

★★★★★ 'Beautiful Sound Design' A Younger Theatre for Ticker 2019

"In some productions, music is incidental - here it's almost another character in the plot, bearing more resemblance to the use of music in film. There's an eerie and lost feeling encapsulated in the string music, augmented with repeated loops..., and plucking rather than bowing adds pointed punctuation and urgency."

 

Actdrop Review for Screaming Body

"The highlight of this performance was the music by which it was interspersed. Composer Holly Khan uses a loop pedal while strumming and playing on her viola to again juxtapose classical and modern art forms. Her music created a melancholic, evocative soundtrack to this tragic myth."
