Oliver Iredale Searle

In his artistic practice, Oliver Iredale Searle attempts to capture personal reflections on past events (often musical) from life experiences, and explores the ways in which he can realise these musically and communicate these ideas to others. He is also interested in inclusivity in new music, and finding new environments for the creation and performance of new work.

Oliver is a Glasgow-based composer and educator, and has written works for many professional, amateur and youth organisations, including the National Youth Choir of Scotland, the Hebrides Ensemble, Red Note, Paragon, Drake Music Scotland, the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, the National Youth Orchestra of Scotland, the New Music Players and the Royal Scottish National Orchestra.

In 2002, he received a silver medal from the Worshipful Company of Musicians and in 2004 won the Mendelssohn Scholarship; he has been nominated for a Royal Philharmonic Society Award and won a British Composer Award in 2018. Over the last few years, his works have been performed at festivals and venues, and broadcast around the world; he is currently Interim Head of Composition at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland.
