Elizabeth Millar is an Australian clarinetist and improviser.
Originally from Perth, Western Australia, Millar has been living in
Montreal, Canada, since 2014, studying with renowned improvisor and
performer Lori Freedman.
Equally at home with free improvisation, noise music, contemporary
classical repertoire and klezmer, her creative work explores a
spectrum of merging acoustic and electronic textures, through
amplification, and the development of an innovative and unorthodox
approach to her instrument.
Recent notable performances include : the Obey Contemporary Music
Festival Halifax, Pop Montreal Festival and concerts in Kuala Lumpur,
Singapore and Australia with her noise duo Sound of the Mountain; the
Acousma Electroacoustics Festival and Journées de la Culture at the
Montreal Contemporary Art Museum with the Concordia Laptop Orchestra;
the Suoni Per Il Popolo Festival Montreal. Millar has collaborated
with Joane Hétu, John Oswald, Craig Pedersen, Ariane Moffat, Ian Birse
and Laura Kavanaugh (Instant Places).
