Ellen Reid

Ellen Reid is a composer and sound artist whose work "brims with canny invention" (LA Weekly). She creates visceral experiences where sound and story collide. Reid's work is largely collaborative and takes the form of opera, scores for dance, film, theater, and immersive interactive media. Reid's score for She Gone Rogue will be featured in the 2014 Whitney Biennial, and her new opera Winter's Child was recently workshopped at The Industry's First Take (Hammer Museum, Los Angeles), which was hailed as "full of imagination, full of promise" by the LA Times. Reid's music direction scoring of Prometheus Bound (Getty Villa, Malibu) was said it would "make you believe that the mythical sirens really existed" (KCRW). Reid's work has been heard internationally at the United Nations in Thailand, Galapagos Art Space (NYC), the Ruhrtrinalle (PACT Zollverein, Germany), 104 (Paris), cˇu'm„a* (Istanbul), and with Theater Mitu in Abu Dhabi, UAE. Reid holds a BFA from Columbia University and an MFA from California Institute of the Arts.
