Abstract: 

Lief Hall is an interdisciplinary artist working as a composer, singer-songwriter, performance and installation artist. Hall’s sound and music compositions incorporate extended vocal technique, processed voice and electronic music production to explore experimental and ‘pop’ music forms. Projecting onto sculptural objects made of paper vellum or textile, Hall’s installation and performance works explore tensions between material and virtual worlds. These spaces are activated by the movement of viewers or performers, with choreography developed through processes of improvisation and embodied research. Hall’s graduate project Sense, Reset is an audiovisual installation that explores virtual experiences of nature, land and place. The installation looks at ways in which globalism and the commodification of nature has complicated our understanding, perception and relationship to the material world. Sense, Reset traverses the audiovisual landscapes of online healing culture, enticing the spectator into an immersive environment; an illusory, sensorial, post-geographic space.
