Angela Chan is a violist, producer and arranger with a little twist. Classically-trained until one day she was shown a reverb pedal and a pickup (immediately blue-tacked onto her viola), she completed her undergraduate studies in classical and contemporary music before obtaining a Masters in Music Production.
Angela works with bands in various roles; session player, touring member, arranger, producer. Besides her main instrument, other credits include violin, keys, backing vocals, synths and samplers, and percussion. Since 2017 she has been a touring member of Placebo and more recently, Kyle Falconer (The View).
As producer, Angela has created audio & sound design for screen, theatre, A.V. installations and virtual gaming applications. From her studio in Leeds, she offers remote string recording, production services and arrangements. She is interested by new music technology and its uses, and is currently working with Interplay Theatre to develop a VR experience with interactive audio elements.
Away from session work, she is creatively involved with Lanterns on the Lake (Bella Union), Tomorrow We Sail (Gizeh Records) and Hello Cosmos.
In her free time, she likes to cook, ride her bike, feel the sun on her face and make noises about 'doing some solo stuff'.
