Gravelbourg (Saskatchewan, Canada), 1973

Called a “brilliant musical scientist” and lauded for “creating a stir with listeners for her breathless imagination and ability to capture Gen-X and beyond generation”, JUNO-nominated composer Nicole Lizée creates new music from an eclectic mix of influences including turntablism, glitch, rave culture, 60s psychedelia, and Hitchcock. Her commission list of over 40 works includes the Kronos Quartet, BBC Proms, San Francisco Symphony, National Arts Centre Orchestra, and NYC’s Kaufman Center.
