Nicholas Baskerville

Paris, France

Once upon a time I was a composer; then life took me along a different path. And now I’ve found my way back. Born in London, I started learning the piano at the age of 6, but it was only when I was 14 that music suddenly made sense to me - and I found that it made sense of everything else, too. I began composing, and went on to study in an English conservatoire. Playing in bands and writing music for theatre and TV, I still couldn’t find a musical outlet that felt authentic, so I turned to a different career. Recently, when the pandemic struck, I found myself near Paris in a slower, more interior world. I began to hear again the music that had visited me earlier in life. It was as though a door had opened, and I just needed to walk through it. I began with a series of intimate piano pieces that I’m still writing. They have mostly come to me in fragments, late at night as I’m about to fall asleep. I just try to follow the fragments, wherever they lead me.
