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, using things she finds around her.

Lucie has created work for 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. In 2020 chosen as one of the winner's of Scottish Natural Heritage and Feis Rois's In Tune with Nature composition competition and a finalist in the Gil Soundtrack Competition. 

 

Lucie has a BA in Ethnomusicology from SOAS, which has very much informed her soundworld and interests within music. She then went on to do a Masters in Scoring for Film and Video Games from Berklee's Valencia campus, learning. Lucie has more recently begun making music for video games, films and animation. She contributed music to the Netflix film 'Outlaw King' and has worked for Indian composer A R Rahman in projects in Bollywood, Mumbai. Lucie also works part time at Spitfire Audio, creating bespoke compositions using their world-class samples and virtual instruments. She is extremely interested in technology and is currently devising an interactive experience in Unity exploring dreams and Sleep, funded by Creative Scotland. Last year she 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 a 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. 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 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...
