Alwynne Pritchard was born in Glasgow in 1968 and as a teenager began having composition lessons with her father, Gwyn Pritchard. She then studied with Robert Saxton at the Guildhall School of Music, and later
with Michael Finnissy at the Royal Academy of Music, where she was awarded many prizes for her work. During the mid-1990s she also studied voice with Linda Hirst. In 1997 Alwynne was awarded a research
scholarship by the University of Bristol and in 2003 received a PhD in composition.

Alwynne?s music has been performed by leading players and ensembles throughout Europe and in America, as well as being recorded for CD and regularly broadcast on the BBC and abroad. In 2005, Decoy, created at the Heinrich Strobel Stiftung for the Donaueschingen Musiktage, was awarded the special prize given by the Foundation Ton Bruynèl, STEIM and the Foundation GAUDEAMUS. Recent projects include Frame for the Danish group Athelas for ensemble, live electronics, tape and film as part of the European Integra project and Don?t touch me, you don?t know where I?ve been, a music theatre/flute concerto for her own voice, Norwegian flautist Børnar Habbestad, asimisimasa ensemble and live electronics, developed by Thorolf Thuestad at BEK in Bergen. Alwynne is currently working on Flutterby for Luc Houtkamp's POW ensemble in Amsterdam.

In 2005 Alwynne formed the Bergen/London-based improvisation quintet FAT BATTERY and a year later the trio Myrtle, with computer programmer Thorolf Thuestad and flautist Rowland Sutherland came into being. Her most recent performance project is the duo Ding Dong with German improviser and hardware circuit bender Guido Henneböhl.

Alwynne Pritchard holds an occasional teaching post at Trinity College of Music and in September 2008 became Artistic Director of the Borealis Festival in Bergen, Norway.
