Keynote Speech: Gail Priest

In the 2018 Hi-Viz Keynote Speech, Gail Priest discusses making sound for performance or performing sound. Gail’s practice explores the oral realm. Working across installation, composition, recording, and performance, she is interested in creating works that dwell in a liminal zone between figuration and abstraction.

This conversation stems from two different ideas. Firstly, the performativity and sometimes lack thereof that is in sound. Secondly, how meaning operates within the two modes of sound and performance. Gail investigates how these two notions are actually interrelated.
