Dr Anthony Lyons is a composer, producer, musician whose practice is an interdisciplinary one traversing moving image, performance, design and installation. Much of his work explores the intersections of music, art, technology, and environment. His creative output includes works for orchestra, solo and chamber ensembles, electronic music, and audiovisual installations. He is a Senior Lecturer in Interactive Composition at the Melbourne Conservatorium of Music, the University of Melbourne.
Anthony’s works have been performed and featured internationally including the Matera Intermedia Digital Arts Festival in Italy, the Porto Film & Media Festival in Portugal, the New York City Electroacoustic Music Festival, and the Melbourne Recital Centre.
Anthony is a frequent collaborator and is drawn to all forms of sonic arts exploration. He embraces multiple modes of making and is drawn to the inner worlds of sound and its connections to memory, sonority and place.
During Anthony’s residency at Bundanon he will concentrate on the early stages of a new composition for piano & electronics. This is a work planned for long-time collaborator, pianist Sonya Lifschitz. He hopes to absorb the colours, sounds and rhythms of Bundanon and feed them into the sound palette of the creative work. Anthony will also write new material for his project called ‘Au Revoir Hands’, which consists of cello, synthesisers, and electronics.
