About me

Neoclassical musician and composer Lihla brings soundscape and live looping to another level. Exploring the full percussive and lyrical range of the cello, drawing on sound effect worlds created through electronic production and vocal textures her sets travel through complex worlds of intricately shifting textures, cinematic orchestration, electronic beats, story telling and soundscape. She pulls her influences from Laurie Anderson, Olarfur Arnalds, Björk, and Nils Frahm, creating downtempo, ambient, classical crossover with strong electronic influences.

A classically trained musician for over 30 years, and a composer and producer for the last 10, Lihla works with a large palette that shifts effortlessly between cinematic modern classical, sonic environment and electronica. She has an implicit understanding of how to mix genres and unusual instrumentations to create a dynamic yet very human and touching soundtrack.
