Liza Lim is a composer, educator and researcher whose music focusses on collaborative and transcultural practices. Beauty, the mosaic of time, ecological connection and a morphing of the senses are ongoing concerns in her ritualistic compositions. Her four operas: The Oresteia (1993), Moon Spirit Feasting (2000), The Navigator (2007) and Tree of Codes (2016), and the major cycle Extinction Events and Dawn Chorus (2018) explore themes of desire, memory, spiritual transformation and the uncanny. Her percussion ritual/opera Atlas of the Sky (2018), is a work involving community participants that investigates the emotional power and energy dynamics of crowds. Liza Lim has received commissions and performances from some of the world’s pre-eminent orchestras, ensembles, soloists and festivals and has had a close collaborative relationship with the ELISION ensemble over 30 years. She is Professor of Composition at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music where she leads the Composing Women program. https://
