Lisa Gerrard

Over a career that takes in almost two decades with the group Dead Can Dance, a number of award-winning movie soundtracks, and a series of acclaimed solo and collaborative albums, Lisa Gerrard has established herself as one of Australia's most ground-breaking and in-demand artists.

Lisa brings a vision that is both precise and all-embracing to everything she does. She is known for using a idiosyncratic language which she has developed since the age of 12 and helps her to connect with people on a deeper level than words can often achieve.

Lisa'a voice has been described by music journalists as rich, jaw dropping, deep, dark, and mournful but most would agree, incredibly unique.

In recent years Lisa has become one of the most highly sought-after film composers in the world, winning major awards for her scores including a Golden Globe win, plus an Oscar nomination for her work on Gladiator

Lisa contributed music to Baraka in 1992. Since then, among the many other films and documentaries she has scored or contributed to are: The Insider, Whale Rider, Black Hawk Down, Heat, Ali, King Arthur, Tears Of The Sun, The Mist, Salem's Lot, A Thousand Roads, Ashes & Snow, Layer Cake, El Nino de la Luna, Henry Poole Is Here, Solo, and Playing For Charlie & Ichi.

In 2009 Lisa’s score to Robert Connelly’s critically acclaimed film Balibo earned her 4 industry award nominations including Best Feature Film Score at the Screen Music Awards.

More recently, Lisa has completed scores to Oranges and Sunshine, Jonathan Teplitzky’s highly anticipated Burning Man and of course, co-composed the score for Samsara.
