Medium: Sound and Music
Liam Elliot is a Canadian composer and sound artist from Calgary currently living in Princeton, NJ.
His work seeks to create a sense of place and reflects a fascination with the sounds and processes of the natural world. He creates acoustic and electroacoustic pieces for concert performance and builds sound sculptures that directly transform natural processes into musical sound.
Liam is a PhD candidate in composition at Princeton University. He completed a Bachelor of Music in Composition at Acadia University and his MPhil in Music Studies at the University of Cambridge. He has also studied composition privately with Anna Thorvaldsdottir, Richard Rijnvos, John Plant, and Bruce Petherick. His work has been performed across Canada, as well as in the US, the UK, Germany, and Bulgaria.
