Joanna Bailie was born in London in 1973. She studied composition with Richard Barrett, electronic music at the Koninklijk Conservatorium in Holland and received a Masters from Columbia University in 2001. Her recent work includes pieces for chamber ensemble, orchestra and installation, and is characterized by its interest in recorded media and the interplay between the audio and visual. She has taught composition at City University London, The Royal Academy of Music in Aarhus and at the 2014 edition of the Darmstadt Summer Courses. Joanna is also active as a curator, running Ensemble Plus-Minus together with composer Matthew Shlomowitz, and acting as the guest programmer at the 2010 SPOR Festival in Denmark, as well as at the 2015 edition of the BBC Radio 3 Cut and Splice Festival. She is currently a guest of the DAAD Artists-in-Berlin-program.

On and Off 2 was first performed (alongside On and Off) at Kings’ Place, London in 2008. It explores the idea of the manmade (electronically produced harmony) and the random (radios stations and static). The piece is in 5 movements.
