Edmund Hunt is a British composer. His work has been played in the UK and abroad by ensembles including Psappha, The Royal Northern Sinfonia, Birmingham Conservatoire Symphony Orchestra, CHROMA, BCMG, ICARUS Vocal Ensemble, The Curious Chamber Players and CoMA (Contemporary Music for All). In 2014, he was selected for the London Philharmonic Orchestra's Leverhulme Young Composers' programme. His composition 'Argatnél' was performed by the LPO in the Queen Elizabeth Hall, London, and was reviewed in the Telegraph as 'the most delicately beautiful piece of the evening'.

Edmund has an MA from the University of Cambridge and an MMus from Newcastle University. He has recently completed a PhD in composition at the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire, where he studied with Edwin Roxburgh, Joe Cutler and Simon Hall. In 2018 he became a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the Arts, Design and Media at the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire, Birmingham City University.

Much of Edmund’s music is inspired by the early mediaeval literature of northern Europe, and his PhD explored this area through the creation of vocal, instrumental and electronic works. Although he often uses early texts, his approach is innovative and contemporary.

Current projects include 'Adopt A Composer' with Newcastle based choir The SIngers, a duet piece for members of the ensemble Psappha, and a new work for Diphonon Duo to be performed in the Wigmore Hall, London in June.
