Lottie Sadd (she/her) is a Leeds-based interdisciplinary composer and artist creating immersive performances and installations. Informed by ideas of ritual and traditional Eastern aesthetics, her practice centres on ideas of ‘Process’. She’s particularly interested in highlighting the art and power inherent within the processes of creation themselves. Through themes of ‘Becoming’ and ‘Interconnectedness’ – via forms of improvisation, field-recordings, and text – her work invites audiences outside the traditional object-centric experience and into these dynamic processes.
Lottie has exhibited work with CAVE (Centre for Audio Visual Experimentation), East Street Arts (2019), and Open Source Arts (2020). In 2017, she was awarded the prestigious Berkofsky Award for the installation Room for Thought (furniture music) (2016-7), becoming the first composer to have won the prize. She graduated with an MMus in Critical and Experimental Composition led by Scott McLaughlin and Mic Spencer at the University of Leeds. In 2020, she was selected for Yorkshire Sound Women Network’s ‘Sound Pioneers’ programme for which she’s devising a large-scale multichannel work for Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival 2021.
