Nicole Lizée

Called a “brilliant musical scientist,” JUNO Award nominated composer Nicole Lizée creates new music from an eclectic mix of infl uences including the earliest MTV videos, turntablism, rave culture, Hitchcock, Kubrick, 1960s psychedelia and 1960s modernism. She is fascinated by the glitches made by outmoded and well-worn technology and captures these glitches, notates them and integrates them into live performance. Her compositions range from works for orchestra and solo turntablist, to other unorthodox instrument combinations that include the Atari 2600 video game console and karaoke tapes.

In 2013, Nicole Lizée was awarded the prestigious Canada Council for the Arts Jules Léger Prize for New Chamber Music and in 2015, she was selected by composer Howard Shore to be his protégée as part of the Governor General’s Performing Arts Awards Mentorship Program.
