Poppy Ackroyd is a performer and composer from London who is currently based in Edinburgh. Classically trained on violin and piano, she fell in love with contemporary piano music and with the piano beyond the keys, discovering the world of sound that could be made from other parts of the instrument. Realizing the violin had the same potential, she has spent the last few years composing delicate, intricate, and beautifully atmospheric music by manipulating and multi-tracking sounds from these two instruments. Every sound, with the exception of a few field recordings, is created using either the piano or the violin.
