’Isa Suarez is a music-maker defying boundaries and borders’’

RESONANCE FM – A World in London

Originally from the Basque region and a classically trained musician, Isa Suarez is a London based composer and singer-songwriter who creates contrasting sound worlds spanning a range of genres across film, visual art, VR and performance.

Her compositions stem from her passion for how music can impact emotions and respond to nature and the human condition. From expansive orchestral scores, mesmeric soundscapes to bold electro-beats and delicate melodies, Suarez enjoys writing in a variety of styles and has an affinity for atmospheric and choral music: she combines her versatile approach with a strong sense of narrative and inventiveness. 

She has worked extensively for film and performance as well as producing large scale installations and audio-walks in collaboration with a diverse range of organisations and artists including Tate Britain, Barbican, South Bank Sinfonia, Artangel, Mimbre, The Ora Singers, Teatro Vivo, Glastonbury and Edinburgh International Festivals, Cape Town and Berlin Art Bienales, Zena Edwards, Ackroyd & Harvey. 

She has scored more than 30 films, featured on BBC, ITV, National Geographic TV, Channel 4, La Sexta/ Spain, France 3 as well as at film festivals including: Cannes Film Festival, London International Film Festival, Raindance Film Festival, Edinburgh International Film Festival, Hollywood Film Festival, Santa Cruz/USA, Pusan/International Korean Film Festival – Recent awards include Best 360° Film Awards at the Cannes World Film festival and Beyond The Curve International Film Festival 2023; Jury Prize Award at Agadir International Film Festival; Nominations at FAFF/ Fine Arts Film Festival/Venice-California 2022

Inspired by her interest in social justice and community engagement, she has created a number of projects that explore these subjects through performance, music and lyrics, produced in collaboration with activists and organisations such as Greenpeace, People United, Amnesty International, Platform, War Child and Extinction Rebellion among others.
