Jennifer Bell, of Bristol England, (M.A. Cantab) is a composer, producer and performance artist. She creates song portraits of people, often drawn from verbatim gathered from interviews. Her close-harmony vocal compositions combine storytelling with the stylistic influences of folk and jazz, and she uses the voice to create the textures and rhythms of dance music. She works across performance genres, as well as making pieces for radio.
She collaborates in the UK and internationally with singers, live artists, writers, dancers, film makers, academics and theatre makers, as an MD, composer, performer, producer or conductor.
