Morag Galloway

Morag Galloway is a lecturer in music at York St John University and a freelance composer, performer, director, workshop leader and photographer. She has a PhD in composition from the University of York, supervised by Professor Roger Marsh, and an MMus in composition from Goldsmiths College, London, where she studied with Sadie Harrison and Roger Redgate. 

Morag’s practice is highly collaborative with a performer and relationship-led process. A breadth of experience in theatre—plus a love of fine and applied arts, dance, film, textiles, psychology and philosophy—has evolved into a distinctive compositional style that explores the space between disciplines and creates multi-faceted experiences.

Current research is taking the form of a music theatre piece for actor Margaret Hillier, tenor Christopher Bowen and cellist/dancer Charlotte Bishop exploring dementia, ageing, families, memories and our relationship with clothes and textiles.
