Tamzin Elliott is a composer from northern San Diego, now based in Los Angeles. She graduated from Bard College and Conservatory in New York with a Bachelors of Music in Composition and a Bachelors of Art in Poetry, and is currently working on her Masters of Composition at University of Southern California studying with Sean Friar. At Bard she studied composition with George Tsontakis and Joan Tower, and was advised by Ann Lauterbach through working on her thesis in Poetry.
In recent years Tamzin has been focusing on writing vocal work for herself and others, on writing lyrics, and experimenting with traditional parameters of live performance - her work often making genre lines ambiguous. She loves performing, whether it be her own work, classical harp repertoire, or Georgian folk music.
