Laura is a sound artist and musician living in Liverpool.
Her work currently focuses on concepts around deep listening and field recording, capturing our sonic environment. Laura creates 360º listening dioramas; audio stories which explore how we connect and respond to our environment spatially, experimenting with the role of the recordist as performer, often interacting with her own voice and physical movements within a space.
During her remote residency at Metal Laura hopes to develop her practice, through daily sound walks, manipulating field recordings collected throughout the residency to compose emotive sonic narratives using spatial audio techniques, using listening as a way of connecting more deeply to our environment and place.
She intends to create a binaural podcast series of her recorded journeys, and 360º spatial audio compositions for online VR listening experiences.
