2021 Oram Award Winner Lia Mice is a multidisciplinary artist whose works includes experimental electronic music production, large-scale digital musical instrument design and live A/V performance.
Lia Mice’s fourth album ‘Sweat Like Caramel’ (Objects Limited) was produced with a sense of fun and escapism, with nods to the eighties and to the Japanese band Yellow Magic Orchestra. Created during lockdown, Lia Mice imagined the feeling of finally returning to the dancefloor, being covered in sweat so thick, “sticky like caramel, sweet like molasses”.
All eight tracks on ‘Sweat Like Caramel’ showcase Lia Mice’s unique sound palette and creativity which cleverly mixes futuristic experimental techno pop, electro, and industrial music with vibrant production to produce an exhilarating, highly original album. ‘Sweat Like Caramel’ features Lia Mice’s own voice sampling and some of the instruments that Lia Mice has designed herself, including her latest instrument, ‘Chaos Bells’, a large (2 metre x 2 metre) sculptural instrument with 20 pendulums that produce bell-like chimes and chaotic drones.
Lia Mice’s previous album ‘The Sampler As A Time Machine’ (Optimo Music) was supported by many acclaimed electronic artists including Objekt, Call Super, Optimo, Zaltan, Koichi, Kid Who, Chloe Frieda, and Claire Morgan.
