Dr. Amy Mallett has been composing and performing music since childhood, taking musical influences from jazz, folk, rock and classical styles. Her work is often inspired by contemporary and historical stories. She enjoys interdisciplinary approaches, and collaborates with practitioners from other art forms to create multidimensional works.
After spending 15 years within FE and HE, teaching music, music technology and performing arts, Amy worked as a freelance composer, sound designer and community practitioner for a number of arts organisations and charities. She currently works as Programme Development Manager for Britten Pears Arts at Snape Maltings in Suffolk, UK.
"Clever, original songs which are both witty and poignant at the same time..." - Audience member, Paperwork! The Musical
"Amy is brilliant at using the words, phrases, feelings, emotions we want to convey in a dance production and creates sound scores which compliment the work beautifully. Each work I’ve created sits side by side with the music, rather than just sat in the background."
- Artistic Director, Karen Louise Dance Company
