Description of work with field recording
Lisa makes soundscapes and music for fixed media, and also collaborates with makers of theatre and dance. It is her firm belief that sound creates and re-creates our understanding of our environment, whether rural or urban, real or imaginary. All her work starts with recordings of the world around her; sometimes she processes these sounds to create imaginary landscapes. Her most recent work has been with unprocessed field recordings, layered and arranged to create 'essences' of place.
