Liza Kuzyakova is a composer, performer, researcher, and curator based in The Netherlands. Basing her sound practice in between multichannel electro-acoustic composition and live performance, her work relates to sonic deconstruction and histories of sound in the instrumental space, traces and distortions of material. With a passion for extreme music, she is an active member of the experimental music scene in The Hague, where she curates a series of live performance events - KRAH.

Her solo musical project Sáof originates around piercing sonic realms of drone/noise, and she is half of Tselem Enosh, an industrial/power electronics duo.

Liza is a frequent collaborator of Amos Peled and has presented her works in a variety of contexts including contemporary dance, performance art, short films, and exhibitions such as Gaudeamus Festival, Rewire Festival, NDT, iii, Grey Space in the Middle, Buda BXL.
