Lucie is a composer and performer creating interactive sound experiences, both digital and theatrical, 'virtual' and 'real'. Her music is characterised by quirky and highly textural sound worlds, playfully woven together into multi-disciplinary work. For each of her projects she crafts bespoke samples and sounds from her creaky studio (see above), using things she finds around her...

Lucie has created work for the Southbank Centre, Kings Place, the Saatchi gallery, Cadogan Hall, St Martin’s in the fields and Buckingham Palace as well as music to be performed in subterranean caves, bathrooms and beaches. 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 created music for orchestras such as the Chroma ensemble, Multi-Story Orchestra  and the City of London Sinfonia and operas with writers such as Joanne Harris (author of 'Chocolat'). Lucie was selected as one of Sound and Music's Composer-Curators for 2019/2020 and is currently working on a commission for Scottish Opera. This year she was also chosen as one of the winner's of Scottish Natural Heritage and Feis Rois's In Tune with Nature composition competition.

Lucie grew up in rural North of Scotland in a family of musicians, writers, artists and ocean cartographers. She wrote her first song on the A9 in the back of a Nissan Micra at the age of ten and started collecting sounds like stamps.

She studied as a teenager at the Purcell School of Music in London where she was taught by Harris Kittos of the Royal College of Music and composer Joseph Phibbs. She then went on to do her degree in Ethnomusicology at SOAS. Her work is informed by the cross-cultural exchanges and traditions that she has researched and she has collaborated closely with artists, dancers and musicians from across the world. Lucie plays lots of instruments from the unique Swedish nyckelharpa to Balinese Gamelan and musical saw, and has collaborated as an instrumentalist with artists from the Lydian Collective to Sarathy Kowar, playing at festivals such as Cheltenham Jazz Festival and Green Man, Wales. Lucie has more recently begun making music for video games, films and animation. She contributed music to the new Netflix film 'Outlaw King' and has worked with Indian composer A R Rahman in projects in Bollywood, Mumbai. Lucie has a Masters in Scoring for Film and Video Games from Berklee's Valencia campus and is currently working on international indie game projects, being released next year. She has also recently created a 360 virtual storytelling experience set in a lighthouse, called Bones + Stars, which encourages people to explore the earth and skies and celebrates women scientists.

As an actor and performer Lucie has been involved in a number of immersive theatrical experiences from acting as a kooky fortune teller for a pop-up show at Glastonbury to working for the enigmatic Secret Cinema. In 2018 Lucie acted in NeverLand, an immersive production by the Guild of Misrule (creators of The Great Gatsby), which ran for the whole of the Vaults festival in London and in a puppet show at Norwich Puppet Theatre called 'Factory of Broken Dreams' by Hocus Pocus Theatre. Lucie also runs the International Archive of Dreams, an archive and museum which invites people to record and document their dreams and learn about dreaming as well as inviting them to use this bank of dreams to create surreal theatre narratives.

There is a folk-like charm to Treacher’s floating melodies,

which form and dissipate like passing thoughts...

                                                                       They are part of a sound world gleaned from an elemental instrumental palette, sonic gestures that combine in more sculptural form than temporal...
