Leading contemporary musicians Juliet Fraser & Richard Craig perform works for soprano, flute & electronics by Patricia Alessandrini, Gérard Pape and John Croft alongside new electroacoustic works by Goldsmiths' students.

In new music, she has performed as a guest soloist with Plus-Minus, ICTUS, We Spoke: New Music Company, London Sinfonietta, BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, Klangforum Wien and Ensemble intercontemporain.

She has premiered well over 100 works, many of which have been written for her, and has worked particularly closely with composers Michael Finnissy, Christopher Fox, Bernhard Lang, James Weeks, Matthew Shlomowitz and Andrew Hamilton.
