Michael Levy is a UK-based composer, whose musical mission is to “continue where the ancients left off,” in creating new music for the recreated ancient lyre. Michael’s music has been incorporated into Rufus Wainwright’s opera Hadrian, the soundscape for Jeff Koon’s sculpture Apollo Kithara, and his music has been featured as part of the permanent soundscape to the Museum of the Bible in Washington, D.C.
