Initially a geneticist, Tara Guram (b. 1971) was subsequently a prize-winning postgraduate student at the Royal College of Music, where she studied with Edwin Roxburgh. Her music has been played throughout Britain, broadcast on BBC Radio 3, recorded with Sargasso Records, published in the Compendium Musicae Flauta 2020, and performed in Mexico, Germany, Switzerland, France, and Jordan.
Previous commissions have included pieces for the Brighton Festival, the International Harp Festival, and the Sound and Image Festival in Bonn. Several U.K. based instrumentalists and ensembles have commissioned Guram, including Street Orchestra Live, and the flute and piano duo Animo, who recorded and released Guram’s Requiem in 2021.
Guram has recently begun writing for media, and has been signed by the U.K. based music production company Media Tracks; she is currently writing and recording her debut albums for them. Guram’s piece for violin and electronics will be streamed by NMC Recordings in April 2022 as part of their Big Lockdown Project funded by the Arts Council.
