Josh Spear

Photograph of Josh SpearI am a composer-performer from the UK and extremely proud to be a member of Bastard Assignments. For me sound is a result of movement, which is first an intention. I love to create music in a variety of genres and am not afraid to collide them. When making work, my first concern is usually what is the experience like the for the audience live. I’m enormously interested in video, experimental theatre, lipsync, dance, immersive theatre, and Drum and Bass.

I read music at the University of Manchester and Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance and hope to begin doctoral studies focussing on how a practice may evolve whereby the sonic and the choreographic elements begin and progress in parallel.

I write music for and with the group but also for Symphony Orchestra, Big Band, for Dance, and Sound Design for Theatre.
