Cameron Biles-Liddell is an award winning composer and pianist based in North Wales, studying for a PhD in Composition at the University of Manchester, funded by the Victor’s Sayers Award for composition. As a composer he has received funding from Help Musicians UK and John Mathews Trust, as well as gaining commissions from Tŷ Pawb, National Youth Percussion Orchestra and the Norfolk and Norwich Festival. Cameron’s music takes inspiration from a wide variety of sources ranging from the environment, artwork and the relationship between temporality and music. This has led to his work being recently premiered by a variety ensembles that most notably include: BBC National Orchestra of Wales, Royal Scottish National Orchestra, Psappha and the solo harpist Olivia Jageurs.
Cameron has also been fortunate to have been selected for composition schemes from across the UK. These range from orchestral collaborations through RSNO’s Composers’ Hub 21:22 to chamber groups such as Psappha’s ‘Composing For’ programme. He has also gained insights from internationally renowned composer mentors, including Nico Muhly from the Dartington Advanced Composition Course, as well as Gavin Higgins and Sarah Lianne Lewis as part of the BBC National Orchestra of Wales’ Composition: Wales programme. Most recently, Cameron has been awarded the Paul Mealor Award for Young Composers and will develop a vocal work for the baritone Jeremy Huw Williams, alongside creating his new concerto, 'The Inextinguishable Flame'. Outside of composition, Cameron is the co-director for University of Manchester's New Music Ensemble and a Widening Participation Fellow.
