Having been much interested in and exposed to abstract visual art from
an early age, Marie-Angélique Bueler (b. 1975), opted for composition
of music. She graduated from the University of Sussex in 1997 for the
degree "Twentieth Century Music Studies", having worked with Martin
Butler, Michael Finnissy, Julian Johnson, and James Clapperton.
During her MA at York University, which Professor Nicola LeFanu
supervised, her music has explored the use of Asian instruments in new
music and aspects of "Sonic Pleasure".
Recent performances have included Shiny Blues, performed by the Dutch
Ereprijs, Tumbling in Time, an ambitious duet for Western flute and
Chinese flute, A Pause in Pelog, performed by Ensemble Bash at the
Spitalfields in London and some piano pieces and a Sextet, performed

Dartington International Summer School. ...And Two Determiners, a
piano/alto saxophone piece recently won a competition run by Fresh
Directions and received its premiere at the BMIC. During July 2000,
Boomerang Media have been distributing her piano piece Have A Bash
throughout the UK.
