Peter Wiegold has long been a leading innovator on the British music scene, with a history of looking radically at all aspects of the process of music making. In particular, he has been a pioneer of, and leading exponent of bringing together composition, improvisation and conducting.
He has a distinguished record as a conductor of contemporary music, but also often works as a ‘creative director’ working directly with musicians to make new work. He also often directs purely improvised performances, using his own set of signals.
He is the director of the Third Orchestra and Club Inegales.
