Ellen Reid is a composer and sound artist whose work “brims with canny invention” (L.A. Weekly). Reid’s work is largely collaborative and takes the form of opera, chamber music, electronic pop songs, immersive interactive media, and scores for film and theater.
Her work has been hailed as “ineffably moving” by Mark Swed of the LA Times, “radiant” by Alex Ross of the New Yorker, and it’s been said that her vocal writing would “make you believe that the mythical sirens really existed” (KCRW). Upcoming and recent projects include world premieres with the LA Master Chorale, HBO, LA Opera, LA Philharmonic, Toronto Film Festival, Beth Morrison Projects and LACO. She splits her time between LA and New York.
