Alicia Jane Turner is an interdisciplinary sound artist based in London, whose work spans contemporary theatre, live art and experimental music. She creates and collaborates on projects that are raw, provocative and political through a feminist, queer lens. Her work as a sound designer and composer in theatre has toured internationally and across the UK, and she has performed at venues including the Southbank Centre, Barbican, The Almeida, The Yard Theatre, Rich Mix and Battersea Arts Centre. She was a Bang on a Can composer fellow in 2018, and is a London Sinfonietta Writing the Future composer for 2020-2021.
In January 2021 Alicia received one of Sound and Music’s COVID-19 Composer Awards:
“I’m thrilled to receive this grant, with which I will explore new avenues in my practice as a composer and sound designer. It will allow me to acquire the tools, resources and skillset to begin exploring composing for visual media for the first time.”
