ABOUT THE ARTISTS
Gail Priest is an artist living on Dharug and Gundungurra land. She has a multi-faceted practice in which sound is the key material of communication and investigation. In her live performance she uses field recordings, processed voice and noise to explore the interaction of the figurative and the abstract, the machinic and the organic, the sensual and the brutal. Her practice encompasses performance, recording, sound design for dance and theatre, installation, curation and writing. She has performed and exhibited nationally and internationally and has several CD releases on her own label, Metal Bitch, as well as other labels including Flaming Pines, Endgame Records and room40.
This initiative is proudly supported by the NSW Government through the Culture Up Late Western Sydney program.
