Leah Curtis composes contemporary classical music, scores for international cinema and music for fine art installations. Described as ‘groundbreaking,’ ‘deeply human’ (Limelight) and “... expressively balancing power with reflection.” (The Canberra Times), her music explores lush, immersive textural worlds, weaving and anchoring nuanced orchestrations with glimmering solo threads. Curtis orchestrated for Heil, Klimek (Sophie Schöll) and Wurman (Something Borrowed), before taking the lead on her own commissions, including the ‘first-rate score’ (Variety) for Sundance thriller Killing Ground. Her music has been played at marquee festivals, including Dubai, Sundance and the Aspen Music festival, and garnered nominations and awards for Best Original Score, Best Song and Best World Music. Curtis has been a Fulbright Scholar and visiting composer at the University of Southern California. She holds a Master of Arts with Honors from the Australian Film, Television and Radio School. She works internationally, writing, orchestrating and recording music for cinema and the concert hall.
