A classically -trained cellist from the age of six, Lih Qun is particularly interested the collaboration of contemporary classical music with physical movement and in how musical and physical languages can speak with each other. Her compositions mostly begin with the cello; her voice. She is intrigued by the exploration of the full vocal and percussive range of the cello.
As a composer, she is sought after in the circus, dance and theatre world for her particular understanding between the collaboration between sound effect, harmony, physical movement and imagery. She explores classical cross-over, combining intricately shifting textures, cinematic orchestration with electronic beats and soundscape.
