Lisa Illean is an Australian composer of acoustic and acousmatic music, living and working in London. Her music has been described as 'exquisitely quiet shadows shaded with microtunings' (The Sydney Morning Herald) and 'a compelling exercise in stillness and quietude' (The Australian). Works span pieces written for orchestra to those commissioned for new, prepared or adapted instruments, and sound works conceived for unique spaces.

Her ensemble works have been performed by BBC, Sydney and Melbourne Symphony orchestras, London Philharmonic Orchestra, members of the Philharmonia Orchestra, Monash Academy Orchestra, Scordatura Ensemble and Explorensemble, in venues ranging from Queen Elisabeth Hall to Cafe Oto. She has made site-specific sound pieces for the Arts Centre, Melbourne, and the Museum of Anthropology, Vancouver.

Lisa is a scholar at the Royal College of Music, where she is completing doctoral research, also supported by a Rae and Edith Bennett fellowship (2017-19). She is the recipient of a 2016 Royal Philharmonic Society prize for composition and a 2016 APRA AMCOS Art Music Fund award.
