Electronic musician Darren J Cunningham, aka Actress, has signed a new deal with Universal’s Decca Publishing.

“I’m excited about this new relationship”, says Cunningham. “This is an important moment in my career, and I feel the team at Decca and Universal are entirely right for me to realise my ambitions as a composer. We have several new projects already underway, from commissioned work to new technologies I am developing”.

Decca Creative Director Danielle Wade adds: “We are over the moon to have Actress join us here at Decca Publishing. He is in an incredible fertile creative place and it is a privilege to support and amplify his ideas – further cementing his reputation as one Britain’s most forward-thinking artists”.

With various projects coming up this year, Cunningham’s next is a performance of new composition ‘(Sin {x} II)’ at London’s Royal Festival Hall on 14 May. A reimagining of Karlheinz Stockhausen’s ‘Welt-Parliament’, the piece includes recordings of members of the UK’s House Of Lords debating the subject of love during the Brexit negotiations.
