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...

Lucie is a composer and performer from the Highlands of Scotland, creating music for animation, film, video games, opera, theatre and beyond. Her unique sense of colour, play, and texture – combined with her extensive appreciation of acoustic instruments from across the globe – produces vibrant and arresting scores.
Lucie is currently working on an animation series with Nexus Studios and the charity Room to Read, a documentary with the Environmental Justice Foundation and a community sound piece funded by the Scottish Government called 'Remembering Together', alongside a major long-term video game project.
She has created work for UK venues such as Kings Place, the Saatchi gallery, Cadogan Hall and the Southbank Centre, and written music for Scottish Opera, the Multi-Story Orchestra, the City of London Sinfonia, Orchestra for the Earth, English Touring Opera and the Aldeburgh Festival. In 2022 she recorded her orchestral short film score 'Microscopia' at Air Studios with a 50-piece orchestra.
Lucie has an MA in Scoring for Film and Video Games from Berklee College of Music and has contributed additional music to the Netflix film 'Outlaw King'. Lucie worked as an in-house composer with Spitfire Audio for two years and worked on a project with prolific Indian composer A R Rahman in Bollywood. Lucie seeks to engage with the environment in her work and created a 360 virtual storytelling experience set in a lighthouse, called Bones + Stars, which encourages people to explore the earth and skies through a celebration of women scientists.
Stitched into her compositions and performances are rich and vivid instrumental textures: Lucie did her BA in Ethnomusicology at SOAS and plays lots of instruments from the unique Swedish nyckelharpa to Balinese Gamelan and musical saw. She has collaborated with jazz fusion group Lydian collective, playing at festivals such as Cheltenham Jazz Festival and Green Man, Wales. She has also performed solo instrumental and vocal parts for soundtracks for video games such as Alto's Odyssey, Monument Valley II and Warhammer III. For each of her projects she crafts bespoke samples and sounds that fuse unusual acoustic instruments with electronics and field recordings. She also builds her own virtual instruments as part of a project called Folklorica : a meeting of technology and mythology.
