LG

Sound Offering V

26 October 2019
5–6pm

Join Brisbane-based performer Leif Gifford, for the fifth edition of Sound Offering, Boxcopy’s monthly program that invites sound artists and experimental musicians to produce an evening of listening.

Gifford’s project LG, named after the artist’s own initials with a nod to a certain company’s brand name, comments on the artist’s struggles with consumer capitalism. This live performance sees LG create a richly layered soundscape teetering between harmony and cacophony using improvised synthesizer, keyboard, vocals, and effects, accompanied by the artist’s own dreamy projections.

Come along to be enveloped in LG’s soundscape and visuals, followed by a conversation with the artist about her practice.

  • Partner:

    Sound Offering V is presented by Boxcopy in partnership with the IMA.
