She has appeared as an actor, vocalist and physical performer in stage productions, as well as directing and developing choreography for her work. This recording combines seven works of different genres and styles to an eclectic portrait of Pritchard’s diverse outputs as a composer and performer. Alwynne has composed for, and performed with, leading musicians and ensembles across the globe. Her work Decoy, created at the Heinrich Strobel Stiftung in Freiburg in 2006, for the Donaueschingen Musiktage, was awarded the special prize given by the Foundation Ton Bruynèl, STEIM and the Foundation GAUDEAMUS. In 2016, Alwynne was awarded the commission to create a fanfare or ‘marker’ to celebrate the opening of Snøhetta’s building for the University of Bergen’s newly created Department of Art, Music and Design, for which she created the book of text scores, up without an insistent casting away.
