Have you heard the beautiful Lisa Gerrard sing? I bet you have but you might not have actually known it!
She is an Irish-Australian musician, singer and composer.Gerrard received a Golden Globe Award for the music score for the film Gladiator, on which she collaborated with Hans Zimmer and Klaus Badelt. Her voice is haunting and has been described as "distinctive, floating effortlessly between sepulchral and heavenly, and often featuring the yangqin (Chinese dulcimer)....electronica with a Middle-Eastern spice, laced with an octave-defying, operatic voice." Image and Bio from The Melbourne Age.
In November 2012, she won Feature Film Score of the Year for her score to Jonathan Teplitzky's Burning Man at the 2012 APRA Screen Music Awards. The win follows on from her win for the same score at the Film Critics Circle of Australia Awards.
