Born: 1974

Biography

Currently based in Shenzhen, China, Fritha's musical background can be best described as "eclectic". Early exposure to electronic synthesized sound, classical piano training, and a short stint as an organ scholar at the Christ Church cathedral in Nelson, New Zealand, provided a unique opportunity to develop as a composer of a variety of music. Further composition training at both Canterbury and Victoria Universities meant a period of time focussed on post-tonal and psychological aspects of music creation and performance balanced with a strong interest in early western music and instruments.

Her latest foray in music has brought her to China where she has incorporated traditional and non-traditional features of Chinese music making into her works. Additional online training via the Berklee College of Music (Boston, USA) has strengthened her interest in electronic sound synthesis. Fritha's next lot of projects hope to include more performance and staging elements that incorporate her growing awareness and understanding of 'world-music', electronic sonic art and aspects of early music.

Fritha's Cyberspace for piano duo was performed at the 2014 Asian Composers' Festival in Tokyo. She is currently Head of Music at Shen Wai International School in Shenzhen, China.
