Nicole Lizée, called a “brilliant musical scientist” and lauded for “creating a stir with listeners for her breathless imagination and ability to capture Gen-X and beyond generation”, is a multiple award-winning composer and video artist. Nicole Lizée creates new music and video from an eclectic mix of influences including the earliest MTV videos, turntablism, rave culture, glitch, Hitchcock, Kubrick, Lynch, 1960s psychedelia and 1960s modernism. She is fascinated by the glitches made by outmoded and well-worn technology and captures, notates and integrates these glitches into live performance. Nicole was recently awarded the 2017 SOCAN Jan. V. Matejcek Award for New Classical Music. In 2013 she received the Canada Council for the Arts Jules Léger Prize for New Chamber Music. She is a Civitella Ranieri Foundation Fellow (New York City/Italy) and received a 2016 Lucas Artists Fellowship Award (California). In 2015 she was selected by acclaimed composer and conductor Howard Shore to be his protégée as part of the Governor General’s Performing Arts Awards. Nicole is the composer in residence for Vancouver’s Music on Main. She is a Korg Canada and Arturia artist.
