Eliza Bagg is a Los Angeles–based experimental musician. Along with creating her own work, she has collaborated with prominent composers on projects ranging from Meredith Monk’s opera Atlas with the Los Angeles Philharmonic (directed by Yuval Sharon) to chamber motets by John Zorn. Other highlights include Michael Gordon’s opera Acquanetta (directed by Daniel Fish), new works by David Lang and Bryce Dessner with Roomful of Teeth, and collaborations with electronic artists Ben Frost and Julianna Barwick on the Liquid Music Series.
Ms. Bagg writes, produces, and performs a solo future-pop performance project as Lisel, whose 2019 debut album (on Luminelle Records) received critical acclaim from publications including Pitchfork, Billboard, and The Fader. She is noted for her use of extended techniques and her unique vocal sound, the basis for her music’s ethereal, otherworldly landscape.
Eliza Bagg sings regularly as a member of Roomful of Teeth and ModernMedieval trio. She has performed as a soloist on the new-music series of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, New York Philharmonic, Los Angeles Philharmonic, North Carolina Symphony, and San Francisco Symphony.
