Free Sound Series Concert – Gail Priest, feat. Monash Electronic Music Ensemble (MEME)
As a Sir Zelman Cowen School of Music artist in residence, Gail Priest will perform a selection of her own work, as well as collaborate with the Monash Electronic Music Ensemble (MEME).
GAIL PRIEST is a Sydney-based artist with a multi-faceted practice in which sound is the key material of communication and investigation. Her work spans solo electro-acoustic performance and recordings, soundtracks for dance, theatre and video and gallery installations. She has performed at festivals and events nationally and internationally. Through her own label Metal Bitch she has released four albums, with Flaming Pines and Endgame Records also releasing solo CDs. In 2015-2016 she is the recipient of the Australia Council Emerging and Experimental Arts Fellowship, which is allowing her to develop her national and international profile as an electro-acoustic performer and sound artist. Forming part of this is her major project, Sounding the Future, a ficto-critical body of work offering speculations as to what art in the future will sound like, with the first iteration exhibited at .move On Werkleitz Festival, Halle, Germany. She curates and produc es sound events and exhibitions and is currently running the gig series Pretty Gritty. She also writes extensively for RealTime magazine and was the editor of Experimental Music: audio explorations in Australia through UNSW Press (2009). As an act of advocacy she has started Audible Women, an online directory for women working with experimental sound.
