Lottie Sadd is an artist/composer and pianist based in Leeds, UK. She works primarily in immersive audio-visual installation art, combining her skills in both electronic and acoustic composition with sculpture.
Informed by traditional Eastern aesthetics, her practice centres on drawing awareness to the art and/or beauty inherent within the processes of creation; themes of unfolding/evolving/becoming are integral in her works, as is the concept of place (understood as a convergence of space and time). Through these ideas, her works invite listeners to step outside the traditional object-centric art experience, and into these processes.
Lottie has exhibited works with CAVE (Centre for Audio Visual Experimentation) and East Street Arts, and has independently curated various performances of her works around Leeds. In 2017 she was awarded the Berkofsky Award for her installation Room for Thought (furniture music) (2016-17) becoming the first composer to have won the prize. She graduated with a Masters in Critical and Experimental Composition at the University of Leeds and aims to continue her practice with PhD study in the near future.
