Born in South Africa, but now resident in Ireland, Kevin Volans' musical idiom has been shaped by an unusually diverse range of influences, including studies with Stockhausen in Cologne, field trips to Africa to study traditional music, his own involvement with the New Simplicity movement and a love of virtuoso piano music which he per forms, broadcasts and records.

Volans' music resists compartmentalisation and he is as comfortable working in conventional genres as embarking on innovative collaborations with artists of other disciplines such as novelist Bruce Chatwin, choreographers Jonathan Burrows and Siobhan Davies, traditional African singers, and visual artist William Kentridge.
