Born in 1966 in Australia, lives in South Brisbane (Queensland, Australia); composer (vocal/instrumental music, music for theatre).

The Australian composer Liza Lim combines the intelligence of modernism with visceral energy and vibrant colour. A recurring thematic thread in her music is the exploration of the idea of crossing cultural boundaries and of ecstatic transformation. Her compositions explore a range of resources from opera and the orchestra to visual arts installations, often including non-Western instruments and have been performed by some of the world’s most eminent ensembles.
