Beatrix Ward-Fernandez

Born in London - raised in Rota, Cadiz.

Violin, Theremin, E.Violin, Castanets, Wood Percussion

I play a wide variety of music mainly concentrating on improvising, playing with amongst others Charlie Collins, John Jasnoch, Martin Archer, Mick Beck, Pat Thomas and J.D. Parran.

The theremin is an important part of my musical expression, using it on its own but also expanding the range with the use of electronic effects.

I am currently a member of The Navigators (with Charlie Collins and John Jasnoch) and Mick Beck’s large ensemble The Gated Community and ASK, playing through out the U.K.

My influences are varied: from the deeply enchanting Debussy and Bartok to the punching sound of Nick Cave and my Southern Spanish background - I can always be tempted with a bit of flamenco or a chirigota or two.

I want to explore the outer limits for the use of music, sound and words. All my pieces are unique creations born of the space around me at the time. They are one with their environment seducing the listener to a world not visited by others.
