Liza Lim (b. 1966) is internationally acclaimed and noted for combining the intelligence of modernism with visceral energy and vibrant color. A recurring thematic thread in her music is the exploration of the idea of crossing cultural boundaries and of ecstatic transformation. Her compositions explore a range of resources from opera and the orchestra to visual arts installations, often including non-Western instruments, and have been performed by some of the world's most eminent ensembles. Notably, she was commissioned by the Los Angeles Philharmonic to write the large orchestral work Ecstatic Architecture to celebrate the inaugural season of the Frank Gehry-designed Walt Disney Concert Hall in 2004.
