Lucie creates music to get lost in. Melodies which make you feel as if you’ve hitched a lift with a travelling circus and been dropped off beside the sea. Using telephones, clocks, blenders and bubble-wrap, she stitches sound-worlds which are dreamy and timeless, creating a sonic playground for you to spin inside till you’re giddy…
Based between the UK and the moon, Lucie Treacher is a composer and artist creating interactive sound experiences, both digital and theatrical, virtual and real. Her work is characterised by quirky and highly textural sound worlds, playfully woven together into multi-disciplinary work _ merging performance, film, theatre and community arts. Being raised by the sea in the Scottish Highlands means that landscape and natural forms inspire a lot of her creative projects.
As a composer Lucie has been involved in a spectrum of projects, taking her from experimental, improvisatory realms to video games and to opera. She has worked with orchestras such as the Chroma ensemble ('Moonlight'), Multi-Story Orchestra ('Snow') and the City of London Sinfonia ('Washing Machine Concerto'). These projects have involved collaborations with writers such as Joanne Harris (author of Chocolat) with whom Lucie created two pop up operas for the Tete a Tete festival, Kings Cross. Lucie has created work for the Southbank Centre, Kings Place, Timespan, the Lillie Gallery, the Saatchi gallery, Cadogan Hall, St Martin’s in the fields and Buckingham Palace as well as for lighthouses, subterranean caves, bathrooms and beaches. Lucie is one of Sound and Music's Composer-Curators for 2019/2020.
