Loré Lixenberg was born in the UK. Her career began with Théatre de Complicité, working with Simon McBurney on ‘Out of a House Walked a Man’ for the National Theatre. Her work spans from performing on concert platforms and opera scenes to new installations and vocals performances with experimental visual and sound artists (Stelarc, Bruce Mclean, David Toop).

She premiered ‘Aatie’ by Frederic Acquaviva at La Fenice in Venice where she was in residency to prepare her own post-shamanic work ‘Bird’ using hyper-extensions of the voice.

She collaborates regularly with New Music Projects Wien and regularly performs with the award winning avant-garde performance group ‘Apartment House’.

In 2004 she performed John Cage ‘Aria’ to critical acclaim for the London Symphony Orchestra Cage Festival. Lixenberg will be touring Europe with a programme devoted to the link of avant-garde movements and music in the XXth century: ‘Manifesto’ and will be directing ‘Infinito Nero‘ by Sciarrino for SCENATET.

She published her first artist book ‘Memory Maps’ and her first monographic CD ‘The afternoon of a phone’ (£@B), continuing her project with ‘Kafka Fragments‘ with violinist Aisha Orezbayeva. She recently performed her own compositions ‘The End Of Civilisation As We Know It’ and ‘Bird’ at Ikon Gallery, ‘Adipose‘ at Spitalfields Festival, London, and is working on her new project ‘Insect’. Her edition of PANIC ROOM/THE SINGTERVIEWS comes out at the end of 2016 and she continues with her live pieces: PANIC ROOM/THE SINGTERVIEWS, and her real time experimental cafe opera ‘Pret à Chanter’.
