Aigerim Seilova while composing

About

Aigerim Seilova, based in Hamburg, is a composer, performer, and media artist. Recognized for her compositions characterized by a blend of high professionalism and a distinctive language (SHMF), Seilova, who studied composition at the Moscow Conservatory, is currently pursuing a doctorate in artistic research at the Hamburg University of Music and Drama under the mentorship of Georg Hajdu, Nina Noeske, and Elmar Lampson. Employing a diverse range of tools, including audio, video, sensors, and electronics, she creates immersive and innovative musical experiences.

Her compositions have been acclaimed for their "uncompromisingly modern language and extraordinary sound intensity, demanding the audience's absolute attention" (Neue Musikzeitung).

Seilova's music has been played and commissioned by ensembles worldwide, including the Norwegian Radio Orchestra, Ensemble Modern, Boston Symphony Orchestra, Badische Staatskapelle, Kazakh Philharmonie Orchestra, Philharmonie der Nationen, Israel Sinfonietta, Schallfeld Ensemble, Amaryllis Quartet and JACK Quartet. Conductors such as Yoel Gamzou, Fedor Lednev, Ken-David Masur, and Miguel Harth-Bedoya have brought her compositions to life on the global stage.

Her portfolio spans solo instruments, chamber ensembles, and orchestral compositions, featured at festivals like Chelsea Music Festival, Kunstfest Weimar, Schwetzinger Mozartfest, Sommerliche Musiktage Hitzacker, Weimarer Frühjahrstage, aDevantgarde-Festival and the Schleswig-Holstein Musik Festival.

Seilova has received scholarships from institutions such as the DAAD, ProExzellenzia and the Zukunftsstipendium des Landesmusikrates Hamburg.  Her participation as a Composition Fellow at the Tanglewood Music Center of the Boston Symphony Orchestra, as part of the Leonard Bernstein Fellowships, further enriched her artistic perspective.

In 2023, her music theater piece, "Ich, Elektra," debuted in Frankfurt with Ensemble Modern, generously supported by the Deutsche Bank Foundation as part of her two-year scholarship from the 'Akademie Musiktheater Heute’.  Seilova garnered the Hindemith Prize at the Schleswig-Holstein Music Festival in 2019. Since 2021, she serves as the deputy chair of the Landesverband Hamburg of the Deutscher Komponist:innen Verband.
