Sound, Art, and Musical Instruments


L. Alexis Emelianoff is a sound artist based in Montréal, currently inventing and performing with acoustic and electronic instruments. She is moved by dissonance in music, structural vibration, the survival of the arts under oppressive conditions, and in her performances based on boiling water, the sounds of matter under stress. Using electricity as a medium, she explores field effects and perceptual extension, what she calls ‘liminal audio’.
