Alex Roth

Short bio

Composer, guitarist and producer Alex Roth is, according to musicOMH, “one of contemporary music’s most innovative and impressive talents.” His diverse body of work ranges from improvised solo performances to orchestral compositions; from dance and theatre scores to sound installations. Among the numerous bands Alex leads are electro-acoustic ensemble Sefiroth, which radically explores traditional Sephardic repertoire; his solo electronic project SUPERSIGIL; MultiTraction Orchestra, a platform for remote collaboration among a global community of experimental musicians; and an improvising trio with clarinetist Waclaw Zimpel and percussionist Hubert Zemler. Alex’s music has been recorded by the London Symphony Orchestra and London Sinfonietta, and his discography also includes collaborations with singer/songwriter Alice Zawadzki and Mercury Prize nominee Laura Jurd, among other releases on labels such as Edition, Whirlwind and Diatribe. A graduate of Dartington College of Arts and the Royal Academy of Music, Alex divides his time between London and Kraków.
