Christian Mason (b.1984) defines composition as “searching in sound for fleet­ ing solidifications of intangible experiences”; his music combines an emotional aspiration to radiance with a sensitivity to natural resonance. 2015 saw the premieres of Open to Infinity: a Grain of Sand, co-commissioned for Pierre Boulez‘s 90th birth­ day by Lucerne Festival and the BBC Proms, Layers of Love recorded by Klangforum Wien and premiered in Japan by Tokyo Sinfonietta, and Sympathetic Resonance, recorded by the Orchestre National de France for broadcast on Radio France’s “Alla Breve” program­ me. Current commissions include In the Midst of the ­Sonorous Islands for ensemble with audience partici­ pation co-produced by the London Sinfonietta, Ensem­ ble ­Modern, Asko/Schonberg and Remix Ensemble as part of the “Connect Project”; and a piece for the Mu­ nich Chamber Orchestra. Christian was previously a Resident-Composer at the Lucerne Festival Academy where his orchestral work Isolarion: Rituals of Resonance was premiered in 2013. The same year, The Years of Light was given its pre­ miere as part of the Tanglewood Contemporary Mu­ sic Festival, USA. In 2014 Unseen Seasons was com­ missioned by the Shizuoka Concert Hall for the Tokyo Philharmonic Chorus, while his first operatic work Reunion, part of Opera Erratica’s production “Triptych” was performed in London. His piece Learning Self-Modulation, for violin and piano, was performed in Paris, Fribourg, London, Amsterdam and Madrid, by Carolin Widmann and Simon Lepper, subsequently receiving a British Composer Award in 2012. Previous works have been performed by Midori, Jean-Guihen Queyras, the London Symphony and the BBC Philharmonic Orche­ stras, to name a few. A Composer in Residence at Eton College in 2014/15, Christian previously worked as Composition Assistant to Sir Harrison Birtwistle, and continues to teach on the LSO Panufnik Young Composers Project. He read

Music at the University of York before pursuing a Ph.D at King‘s College London with George Benjamin. Chris­ tian is the founding co-Artistic Director of the Octandre Ensemble. In 2015, Christian Mason received the Advancement Award of the Ernst von Siemens Musikstiftung.
