Sarah Angliss – examples of work

Here are some examples of Sarah’s work for theatre, feature film and dance as well as character pieces from her own live set – works with a sound palette that’s adaptable for theatre (e.g. The Bows). Classically trained and with roots in ancient music and European folk, Sarah also has degrees in electroacoustics and biologically-inspired robotics. She combines these disciplines in all aspects of her work.

Sarah’s music combines ancient instruments with theremin, live electronics, field recordings and her own robotic inventions. Sarah’s particularly drawn to soundworlds that blur the boundaries between composition and sound design.

In the studio and rehearsal room, she mixes her own notated scores and extemporisations with bespoke patches she’s designed in the graphical sound programming language Max/MSP. She’s also highly proficient in QLab, Ableton, Logic, Protools and other essential audio software.
