Lisa DeGrace primarily creates and performs music for dancers. She describes her work as “environmental soundcapes,” developed from layers of vocal manipulation, sound clips, and live & recorded instrumentation. Her scores offer grounding for narrative, movement, and mood. Current sound interests include tree bark, rocks, subways, and train bells. And voices. Always voices. DeGrace has developed scores for and performed in almost 20 moody little works over the past 10 years, and is only getting moodier. She has a degree in composition from Hampshire College. In addition to composition work, Lisa creates performance pieces steeped in her training as a clown. Don’t be scared. When not performing, Lisa is the Executive Director of Blue Sky Gallery.
