I hear something in a sound and it makes me feel something. Then I try to capture that emotion.

Klara Lewis is a Swedish composer who creates vast, enveloping tapestries of field recordings and electro-acoustic sampling. Her debut album Ett 2014 was acclaimed for its complex processing and layering of sounds – creating tones and textures that land with a resounding impression. Lewis's latest album, Too 2016, offers an even more dense and evocative experience, fluidly weaving together drone and rhythmic dynamism. Klara's live shows are immersive aural and visual events, carefully designed to wrap around the spatial dynamics of a venue and featuring stunning video projections made in collaboration with Hampus Högberg. She recently performed a newly commissioned live score for the silent film Berlin: Symphony of a City 1927 at the Centre Pompidou, in collaboration with Simon Fisher Turner and Rainier Lericolais.
