Will Dutta

Pianist and composer Will Dutta has long made it his mission to join the dots between Modern Classical and Dance music's more adventurous fringes.

Through his multiple roles as Concert Pianist, Collaborator and Creative Producer of Chimera Productions, Will Dutta's ongoing interest in connecting the dots between modern dance music and contemporary and experimental art music has led to performances at Village Underground, Ether 10 at the Southbank Centre and Tate Modern and collaborations with the likes of Warp-veterans Plaid, sonic artists John Matthias and Neil Grant and composer Max de Wardener.
Dutta studied piano performance with Philip Fowke and Mikhail Kazakevich at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance and was one of eight emerging producers to participate in the first New Music Plus... developed by the PRS for Music Foundation in association with the hub, supported by Arts Council England, the Cultural Leadership Programme and Sound and Music, in which he received bespoke training, a twelve-month placement with Tate Britain and mentoring from Joanna MacGregor.

He was the mastermind behind Gabriel Prokofiev's Concerto for Turntables & Orchestra and Executive Producer of Nonclassical's 2009 release which featured DJ Yoda & Heritage Orchestra. The piece has gone on to feature at the BBC Proms in 2011 and premiere at the Simon Bolivar Hall in Caracas, Venezuela in 2012 where Will worked closely with the British Council and FundaMusical Bolívar (commonly known as El Sistema).

Will is currently Music Co-ordinator at the National Portrait Gallery, a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts and he holds a position on the piano faculty at St Helen & St Katherine in Abingdon.
