Liza writes stories and makes music to bring them to life.

What do rocks hear as they melt?

How does it feel to experience a seizure?

Liza built their own instrument, the robo-recorder, to create sonic answers to these questions. The roborecorder is featured in the Museum of Science and Industry’s 2022 touring exhibition Turn It Up: The Power of Music and is currently on display in London. It was also chosen to be included in the BBC Radio 6 Museum. Hear more about Liza in this feature created for New Scientist magazine.

Liza produces original and unusual music from their studio, Anarres. They are also an accomplished writer and performer, fusing electronic recorder improvisation, spoken word and percussion in their monthly serial fiction podcast, Spiral Dial.
