Past Creative Arts Fellows

List of past Creative Arts Fellows.
 

John Duggan

Creative Arts Fellow 2012, Composer and singer.

John started his music career as a chorister in Westminster Cathedral before studying music at Keble College, Oxford. He has a varied musical background with experience ranging from sound engineering for the likes of Radiohead and the Manic Street Preachers, to playing drums in jazz and pop bands, and composing for a number of local and national choirs. In 2006, John co-founded the Oxford-based choir Sospiri and is now their official composer-in-residence.

John will be drawing on this experience to develop a number of new collaborations at Wolfson and is particularly looking forward to the opportunity to work with The Fournier Trio, currently artists in residence at Wolfson.

Longer term, John plans to build on his body of work based on poetical texts from World War I. Describing the project, he said, "I’m delighted that Professor Jon Stallworthy is a member of the college. He has written extensively on the life and work of Wilfred Owen, who has been a great source of inspiration to me."
