Artist and vocalist Lesley Flanigan (New York) approaches electronic sound with a sculptural method based on materials of noise and tone. Surrounded by clusters of wires, speakers, and microphones, she choreographs the sounds of speaker feedback against her own singing voice, constructing music that embraces the transparency of process. ArtsCriticATL writes, “Flanigan’s performance comes loaded with philosophical ideas, often blurring the boundaries among music, noise, sculpture and performance art.” Amplifications, her album of music for speaker electronics and voice, was called a “snow storm of a record” by New Music Box. Her work has been presented at venues and festivals internationally, including Sonar (Barcelona), the Guggenheim Museum (New York), ISSUE Project Room (Brooklyn), TransitioMX (Mexico City), the Roskilde Museum of Contemporary Art (Denmark) and .HBC in Berlin.
