Sarah Lianne Lewis is a Welsh composer of bold and imaginative contemporary classical and electronic music. Her musical language explores the boundary between acoustic and electronic sound, engaging the audience in unique soundscapes and sonic atmospheres. Her work often looks at climate change, the natural world and the human condition, informed by a female disabled perspective. 

Whether working with world-class musicians or leading workshops with children, Sarah’s creative practice incorporates collaboration at its heart, and seeks to empower and include all music-makers with a sense of ownership over the work. 

Over the last few years, she has worked with a variety of performers, audiences and spaces; from textural orchestral works in concert halls, to contemplative chamber ensemble works in a late-night gin bar, to creating expansive storytelling soundscapes through silent disco headphones under the stars.

She has worked with a range of ensembles such as the Royal Scottish National Orchestra, Quatuor Bozzini, Sarah Maria Sun, UPROAR, and Nevis Ensemble, and been commissioned and performed by several UK and European music festivals including Cowbridge Music Festival, Heidelberg Festival, CNCM gmem’s ‘Les Musiques’, Archipel Festival, Festival d’Aix-en-Provence and the Lucerne Festival. 

Sarah is currently Composer Affiliate with the BBC National Orchestra of Wales; the youngest, and the first ever woman, to hold such a residency with the orchestra. She is also currently one of three UK-based composers awarded a fellowship by the PRS for Music Foundation to represent young outstanding British talent at the Classical:NEXT conference in Rotterdam in Autumn 2021.
