Notes and Editorial Reviews

Fumiko Miyachi writes of this new release: “Transitional Metal is my first portrait album featuring six pieces written between 2003 and 2016. I have always been drawn to the neatness of the periodic table; the rhythmic drive and clarity of texture inherent in my music somehow conjure the “metal” connection. Starting with carbon (which is not a metal, I know!) in 2010, I have named four more pieces after metal elements, three of which are included here.” Having had piano lessons since the age of three, music has always been part of Fumiko’s life. She was born in Tokyo, Japan in 11979 and has been living in the UK since 1993. She stumbled into composition when she was asked to take up a second study at Royal College of Music Junior Read more Department; though she took up the cello a few years later, composition came to mind first, as she had always enjoyed notating familiar tunes like movie themes and pop songs. Since then, she has been a composer and pianist. After completing her BMus and MMus studies in composition at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, she obtained a DPhil from University of Sussex under Martin Butler’s supervision. Read less
