Steve Knight (b.1978) originally completed his formal study of music with a PhD in composition under the instruction of Darren Sproston, and examined by Raymond Warren and Robert Wilsmore. In September 2013, he commenced a Personal Study Plan at the Birmingham Conservatoire under the tutelage of Joe Cutler, Ed Bennett and Andrew Hamilton, with the view to increase his profile as a composer and researcher. Steve’s music typically takes conceptual influence from contemporary dystopian literature, film and philosophy.
