Lisa Lerkenfeldt - Collagen
On this album by Melbourne-based performance, sound and gesture artist, the everyday is raised on high to an elevated role of composing a deeply contemplative soundscape. The sounds used churn between natural and synthetic, a healthy juxtaposition reached by varying focal points. Swirling cellos, bowed in tidal basins, may not be how this was recorded by Lisa Lerkenfeldt, but the effect is the same.
Whereas drone can often conjure a very heavy vibe, these are almost a drone for a body flying in orbit just at the edge of Earth's firmament. Released by the inimitable Shelter Press, this work is accompanied by an online performance. 14 gestures associated with this album will be performed in experimental film and online viewing room of graphic notation at www.14gestures.com from 29th July til 29th October.
