Gail Priest / Photography by Samuel James

Gail Priest has a multidisciplinary practice that focuses on the aural realm. Working across installation, composition, recording and performance she aims to create experiences in which the participant’s perceptual and cognitive processes are subtly re-organised. She has performed live electro-acoustic compositions and exhibited sound-based installations nationally and internationally including in Japan, Hong Kong, Germany, France, Norway and the Netherlands. She also curates events and exhibitions and writes fictively and factually about sound and media art.
