About the Author:

Michael Finnissy was born in Tulse Hill, London in 1946 and studied at the Royal College of Music. He later studied in Italy with Roman Vlad. He went on to create the music department of the London School of Contemporary Dance, and has been associated as composer with many notable British dance companies. He has also been musician in residence to the Victorian College of the Arts, the City of Caulfield in Australia, and the East London Late Starters Orchestra. In 1999 he was made Professor of Composition at the University of Southampton. Finnissy has been featured composer at the Bath, Huddersfield and Almeida festivals, amongst others, and his works are widely performed and broadcast worldwide. Recordings are available on various labels, notably NMC and Metier; the latter has released a cycle of CDs to great critical acclaim.


Photography as a retrospective score of our lives; but scores are open to interpretation. Finnissy keeps his cultural aperture forever wide-angled, ideas and sounds papped ferociously. Believe me, if you could see the score you'd grasp the scope of the enterprise. * Philip Clark, Gramophone Magazine, January 2014 * Endlessly fascinating, engaging, challenging, puzzling, beautiful, thought-provoking and charming. * Christopher Dingle, BBC Music Magazine, January 2014 * The History of Photography in Sound (1995-2001) is a deeply personal reflection on [Finnissy's] background and artistic enthusiasms, * Philip Clark, International Piano, November 08 *
