Paxton, Alex

Alex Paxton, born in Manchester in 1990, is a composer and improvising-trombonist. He studied jazz and composition in London at the Royal Academy of Music and the Royal College of Music. Awards include an Ivor Novello Composer Award and the Royal Philharmonic Society Composition Prize. His music has been released on labels including Listenpony and Everest Records, and, most recently, “Music for Bosch People” on Birmingham Record Company/NMC Recordings.

Alex describes his music “like minimal but loads more notes like video-games but with more song like jazz but much more gay like old music but more current like yummy sweet but more stick like paint but more scratch like tapestry but filthily like prayer but more loud like loud groove and more rude like fingers and faces too but somehow more smelly like smelly things cooking with more chew and change like louder prayers that groove with like stinking-hotpink in poo-brown but even more desperate-like than that like drums and Dream Musics …

Upcoming projects include new commissions for Explore Ensemble, London Sinfonietta, Riot Ensemble, and two portrait albums: “ilolli-pop” on nonclassical in October 2022 and “Happy Music for Orchestra” on Delphian in 2023.
