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.
Liam completed his Bachelor of Music in Composition at Acadia University, where he studied with Derek Charke and Dinuk Wijeratne, and his MPhil in Music Studies at the University of Cambridge (Emmanuel College), where he studied with Jeremy Thurlow, Richard Causton, and Joseph Phibbs. He has studied composition privately with Anna Thorvaldsdottir, Richard Rijnvos, John Plant, and Bruce Petherick. Liam was employed by Acadia University as a Teaching Assistant in composition and theory, and has taught composition, theory, and piano privately.
Liam’s music has been performed in Canada, the U.S., and the U.K., and his sculptures can be found in Nova Scotia.
