Riz Maslen has been described as one of the most prominent women composers working in post-techno experimental electronics. Her music has been released on Ninja Tune, Mush Recordings, Squid Eye and she is currently signed to Architects and Heroes in the USA.
In the last few years her work has branched into more sound design and composition working both collaboratively with artists, and developing her own solo sound installations. In 2011 Riz was commissioned by Kew Gardens and selected for Bow Arts Open.
In 2012 Riz was selected as one of the 10 finalists in the ENO’s mini opera’s competition.
In the summer of 2012 Riz embarked on the trip of a lifetime to one for the most remote areas of the threatened heart of the Borneo rainforest, in Central Kalimantan, part of an international team of explorers, scientists and capacity builders who work with remote forest communities to help protect their environment and culture. On her return to the UK Riz created a number of works related to her experience in Borneo, an interactive app, two short films and audio works which have been showcased during Coastal Currents and Noise and Whispers in 2013.
