Although she has probably become known as one of Australia's best-known composers, Liza Lim's compositions undermine centuries-old Eurocentrism and are largely inspired by Asian culture.

sample the album:
"Liza Lim belongs to a new class of composers whose artistic approach is destined to undermine centuries-old Eurocentrism once and for all: though adapting "Western" techniques to a degree, they seek spiritual orientation in other cultures. It is an organic paradigm shift with totally new artistic results. Liza Lim ,too, is well-acquainted with the key European traditions and techniques. She studied with Ton de Leeuw in Amsterdam, is familiar with the scores of a Brian Ferneyhough and attended Summer Courses in Darmstadt, even going on to teach there. But her sources of inspiration and the roots of her musical language are largely Asian. This already becomes clear from the sonorities of her works."-Max Nyffeler
