life

Violinist +, producer, researcher, violin teacher.
Founding member and executive director of Distractfold Ensemble.

Linda’s artistic interests orbit around long-term collaborations and a performance practice that stretches her limitations.

In 2016/17 concert season she was busy co-curating and co-producing the 2017 Cut and Splice Festival in Manchester.

In recent years she has also collaborated on a number of new music works, recorded for Another Timbre, worked with Ensemble Interface, as well as participated in interdisciplinary projects (New Movement Collective ‘Casting Traces‘, Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui ‘Sutra’).

In October 2014 she started working towards a PhD in contemporary music performance at the University of Huddersfield researching the topic of interdisciplinary virtuosity.

Linda teaches violin in Chetham’s School of Music and is a violin and viola lecturer at Leeds College of Music.

She was classically trained in her native Poznań with Marcin Baranowski, later in Munich with Christoph Poppen and in Manchester with Jan Repko. Linda owes her initiation to contemporary music to the Lucerne Festival Academy which she attended in 2007-09.
