Andrew Lewis is an award-winning composer and an internationally recognised figure in the field of acousmatic composition. His more recent work includes more music for orchestras and ensembles, but retains a strong interest in the materiality of sound, and the use of technology to realise new kinds of musical ideas. He is especially interested in spatial sound, in the relationship between 'real-world' and 'abstract' sounds, and in the phenomena of aural perception as part of the creative process.
