Elżbieta Sikora

Composer, sound engineer. For many years active in France, where she studied with Pierre Schaeffer and François Bayle. She focuses her creative enterprises upon electroacoustic and purely electronic music, in addition to musique concrète. Her musical language is the result of a search for new sounds and experiments, and she has been frequently inspired by unusual sounds of the background, which, later in the process of composition, she transforms electronically. Opera plays a significant role in Sikora’s oeuvre; in this genre she transcends the traditional formal constraints. (EC)
