Kerrin Tatman is a composer from East Yorkshire specialising in inter-disciplinary projects. He writes a variety of contemporary classical music and art-song for the stage and concert hall, with influences including Stravinsky, Sibelius, Ligeti and Arvo Part, as well as Eastern European folk music, puppetry and circus.
In 2008 he won the National Centre for Early Music Young Composers Competition for ‘Stabat Mater’, which was performed by the Tallis Scholars, and in 2013 musical directed and arranged Joe Hisaishi’s score for an international stage production of Studio Ghibli’s film ‘Princess Mononoke’ that toured to London and Japan. In late 2015 Kerrin was a multi-instrumentalist actor-musician in the Georgian Theatre Royal circus pantomime Jack and the Beanstalk.
Kerrin released his debut EP ‘Fly Into My Vapour Arms’ in early 2016, which features four of his shorter works. He is currently writing a song-cycle based on past and present Hull figures to celebrate the successful 2017 City of Culture bid.
Kerrin is currently based in Newcastle and runs the Circus Central house band ‘Tatters Catman and the Infinite Broken Sequins’, but is available nationwide and internationally as a composer, performer and musical director.
