Growing up around equipment and metalworking on a farm in northeast Missouri, Lisa R. Coons acquired a special affinity to noise composition and found sounds. She received her PhD in Composition from Princeton University, her Master’s from SUNY Stony Brook and studied at the University of Missouri-Kansas City during her undergraduate degree. Lisa’s portfolio includes music for acoustic and electronic instruments, turntables, traditional ensembles, and welded percussion sculptures. She was awarded a 2011 Composer Fellowship from the Other Minds Festival, an ICElab Fellowship from the International Contemporary Ensemble, and received an ASCAP Morton Gould Young Composer Award for the string quartet Awkward Music. Recent commissions include works for The California E.A.R. Unit, The Machine Project for the Hammer Museum of Los Angeles, the Violin Futura Project, and Dither Electric Guitar Quartet. Lisa is a Jackie McLean Fellow and visiting professor at the Hartt School in the University of Hartford and is a member of the bicoastal composers collective called, simply, The Collected.
