Lawrence English speaks and performs in Porto

On Thursday, December 4, Lawrence English will speak of his artistic practice at FBAUP, in Porto and, later on the same day, he will perform at Passos Manuel.

Lawrence English has worked at the nexus of music, field recording and listening for over a decade. In that time he has sought to develop an array of activities that coalesce with these interests. He will speak to his research around the modes of listening and specifically about how creativity plays a central role in our listening. He will also speak to the nature of multitasking as an act of maintaining a multifarious art practice.

Lawrence English is a composer, media artist and curator based in Australia. Working across an eclectic array of aesthetic investigations, English’s work prompts questions of field, perception and memory. English utilises a variety of approaches including live performance and installation to create works that ponder subtle transformations of space and ask audiences to become aware of that which exists at the edge of perception.

The talk will start at 17h at FBAUP, the performance at 23h30 at Passos Manuel.
