Born in Australia, Liza Lim is a composer, educator, and researcher whose music focuses on collaborative and transcultural practices. Beauty, rage and noise, ecological connection, and female spiritual lineages are at the heart of recent works. Her large-scale cycle Extinction Events and Dawn Chorus (2018) has found especially wide resonance internationally and highlights ecological listening to beyond-the-human realms. Her work is widely commissioned by some of the world’s pre-eminent orchestras and ensembles including the Los Angeles Philharmonic, Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra, BBC, and International Contemporary Ensemble. Awards recognizing her wide-ranging career and depth of compositional practice include the Australia Council’s Don Banks Award (2018), the Happy New Ears Prize of the Hans and Gertrud Zender Foundation (2021) and the 2022 APRA AMCOS National Luminary Award. Lim is Sculthorpe Chair of Australian Music at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music and was a Fellow of the Berlin Institute for Advanced Study in 2021–22.
