Klara Lewis is a Swedish composer born 1993. Her critically acclaimed debut album “Ett” was released by Viennese record label Editions Mego in 2014. Lewis initially worked with film and the moving image, and from there developed practices which have influenced her ways of thinking and working with sound, where the material constantly allude to a vast array of possible images. She is currently collaborating with Simon Fisher Turner and Rainier Lericolais on a series of live performances of a new soundtrack to Walter Ruttmans classic 1927 silent film “Berlin: Die Sinfonie der Großstadt.”

“[…] ‘Ett’ is the work of a gifted and thoughtful sound sculptress, who combines found sounds, field recordings and electronic textures to create beguiling and resonant works that operate on all manner of levels.” Joseph Burnett, The Quietus.

The way [Lewis] manipulates these recordings of her own surroundings is expressive and intuitive, and the music sparkles with personality despite its sparseness.
