Hannah Peel & Paraorchestra

Emmy-nominated, RTS and Music Producers Guild winning composer, with a flow of solo albums and collaborative releases, Hannah Peel joins the dots between science, nature and the creative arts, through her explorative approach to electronic, classical and traditional music.

From her own solo albums to composing soundtracks like Game of Thrones: The last Watch, or to orchestrating and conducting for artists like Paul Weller, her work is ambitious, forward-looking, always adapting and re-inventing new genres and hybrid musical forms.

Hannah is a regular weekly broadcaster for BBC Radio 3’s Night Tracks.

Paraorchestra is the world’s only large-scale virtuoso ensemble of professional disabled and non-disabled musicians.

Their mission is to redefine what an orchestra can be. They see it as an extraordinary and perfectly synchronised body of instruments that draws on the tradition of centuries but is enriched and expanded by the talents, the instruments and the zeitgeist of the 21st century.

The Unfolding is a major new work by Hannah Peel, commissioned by and performed with Paraorchestra (conducted by Charles Hazlewood) and takes a cyclical journey from the very atoms of human existence and the awakening of life, through to our eventual re-folding back into the elements. The album will be released in Spring 2022.

As a label, studio and festival group Real World’s association with Hannah Peel goes back to 2015, so to work together on The Unfolding feels like a natural progression in our working relationship and a collaboration we’re all hugely excited about.
