“The sound generated by Liza’s cyborg recorder is like nothing I’ve heard before….classical elements merge with jazz, folk, psychedelia, ambient and electronica….such an exciting project that you can easily get lost in it.” York Calling

As imaginative and alive as the name suggests – this is like the music from a kaleidoscopic tale you read as a child, listen to this and embark on a wonderful adventure.” MusicnGear

“A wonderfully engrossing story that packs a huge punch. Readers’ Favorite

Liza studied clarinet performance at Trinity College London where they were awarded a Distinction and the Hambleton Clarinet Prize.

Their professional performance career was cut short after the devastating diagnosis of a rare form of epilepsy, triggered by playing certain patterns of notes, after which they qualified as a medical doctor on the Graduate Entry programme at King’s College London.

Highly accomplished, they also hold a Masters degree in Geology from the University of Oxford. They often use concepts from science and medicine as a source of inspiration for their creative work.
