Australian artist Lisa Lerkenfeldt’s multi-disciplinary work embraces music concrète, environmentalism, noise, found objects and the cinema of Marguerite Duras in the composition and imagining of her live post-digital, post-industrial landscapes. Concerned with intimacy, technology and automation her performances and recordings employ feedback, electronics, objects and field recording to generate new experiences in sound and gesture.
She has exhibited sound and performed at Supersense Festival, MPavilion, Liquid Architecture, Melbourne Fashion Week, Mona Foma and Gertrude Contemporary. She is also a member of noise duo, Perfume.
29° – a piece for tape loops, piano, cello and the wind.
Recorded between Summer and Autumn 2019.
Focussing on variations that shift from violent to delicate, the piece explores the duality of the wind through a season of field recording summer storms at a post-industrial beach. 29° is a suite of modern classical instrumentation and experiments on magnetic tape.
Listening is cinematic, like a landscape unfolding.
My field recordings are a collection of perceptions.
