Emma Lloyd

Emma Lloyd is a violinist and violist specialising in the performance of experimental contemporary music and improvisation. She performs as a soloist and in small ensembles, working often with live electronics, and collaborating regularly with composers. In addition to the modern set-up, she plays a baroque violin and performs both baroque and contemporary music written specifically for this instrument.


As an improviser, Emma’s performance tends to be quiet and intimate in nature, exploring the innate timbral qualities of the violin, and discovering some of the often hidden sounds that can be found with her unique combination of technique and tools.


Ensembles include KUBOV, a violin/electronic duo with Jess Aslan, and a duo with pianist Karin Schistek. She is the violist with the Ison trio and she plays in improvisation groups Grey Area and Edimpro.
