Jennifer Bell (M.A. Cantab) is a composer, producer and performance artist.
She specialises in a-cappella, but works across genres in theatre, as well as making pieces for radio. She creates song portraits of people, often drawn from verbatim, gathered from interviews. Her close-harmony compositions combine folk storytelling with the stylistic influences of folk and jazz, and she uses the voice to create the textures and rhythms of dance music.
She works internationally with all manner of singers, live artists, writers, dancers, film makers and theatre makers, and collaborates as an MD, composer, performer or conductor. Check out who here.
Her voice practice engages people technically, physically and emotionally. She takes on private students and has taught singing at BIMM and at Westonbirt Schools.
Jennifer is a Co-Director of the Bristol-Berlin Queer Arts Exchange CIC, a member of Bristol artist collective Residence, one of the international producers of Social Muscle Club and a resident of Pervasive Media Studio.
She is a Happiness Champion, on Bristol's first Happy List 2013, created by Bristol Evening Post and Happy City.
