Medium: Sound and Music
Liam Elliot is a Canadian composer and sound artist based in Canada and the U.K.
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.
His music and sculptures have been heard in Canada, the U.S., and the U.K. Liam completed his Bachelor of Music in Composition at Acadia University, and his MPhil in Music Studies at the University of Cambridge (Emmanuel College).
His teachers have included Anna Thorvaldsdottir, Richard Rijnvos, Jeremy Thurlow, and Derek Charke. In September 2018 he will begin a doctorate in composition at Princeton University.
