Working around her glitchy brain, Liza re-learnt how to play through improvisation. After collaborations with James Holden and The Memory Band she now creates improvised soundscapes and short stories with her band Spiral Dial. She was also supported by Help Musicians UK Fusion Fund to create Innervate, an audiovisual installation inspired by her experience of music triggered epilepsy. Liza has studied geology and medicine and considers herself a fully qualified geek.
