Lise Morrison is a South African composer based in The Hague. Her instrumental and electroacoustic works deal with repetition, extended form, and the effects of material and pacing change in a fragile environment of carefully exposed sounds. Her work has been presented in events in Europe, North America, Asia, and Africa. Notable performances and collaborators include the Ives Ensemble, Slagwerk Den Haag, Orkest de Ereprijs, New European Ensemble, Ensemble Modelo62 (NL), Ensemble Mise-En(USA), Moscow Contemporary Music Ensemble (RUS), and the Bozzini Quartet (CA) in festivals/venues such as the Unyazi Electronic Music Festival, Moscow Philharmonic, Orgelpark Amsterdam, Lucerne Festival Academy, and Gaudeamus Muziekweek. Lise holds a B.Mus (Hans Roosenschoon) from Stellenbosch University and an M.Mus (Calliope Tsoupaki, Huba de Graaff, Mayke Nas) from the Royal Conservatory The Hague.
