Lydia Winsor Brindamour’s work explores cross-sensory perception, embodiment and acoustic properties of sound. She is interested in immersive contexts for live performance, challenging conventions of proscenium performance spaces and providing alternative modes of engagement for the audience. Her practice includes composition, photography and video and she enjoys working in interdisciplinary collaborative contexts.
Lydia has studied primarily with Chaya Czernowin, Roger Reynolds, Rand Steiger and Hans Tuschku. She completed her BA with highest honors in music at Harvard College and received both her MA and PhD at the University of California San Diego. Her work has been performed at a variety of festivals in the US and Europe, including MATA, Mis-en, Wellesley Composers Conference, SICPP, Composit, Kalv, and SoundSCAPE.
