Sarah Angliss is a composer, multi-instrumentalist and digital artist, specialising in live electronic music, interactive sound and robotics. She has an unusual combination of skills—in music, electroacoustics and robotics. Sarah is known for her theremin playing, her unusual approach to electronic music (which she uses to explore relationships between technology and European folklore) and for the robots she’s devised and built to accompany her live on stage. Sarah is also a sound historian and her research into the early history of sound technology often informs her compositions and live shows. Sarah performs solo and as part of the the human and robot trio Spacedog.

In autumn 2012, Sarah was commissioned by The National Theatre to compose an electronic score for The Effect, Lucy Prebble’s new play. In the last twelve months, Sarah has performed live at the Flatpack Festival, on MS Stubnitz; The Horse Hospital, Brighton Digital Festival; The Bath Festival; Lovebytes, Supersonix, dConstruct and many other events around the UK. She’s also performed live with her robotic instruments on national radio. Sarah recently collaborated with Moon Wiring Club and other artists on Down to the Silver Sea, an album on the Gecophonic label. Her trio Spacedog have just recorded a Study Series collaboration with Belbury Poly for Ghost Box (due for release in October 2013). In May, Sarah was awarded Most Groundbreaking Act of Brighton Festival and Fringe 2013.
