Dr Lisa Busby is a practicing musician, artist and researcher whose works span the audible, visual and tactile interactive; and have incorporated a variety of media including music and sound; textiles and needlework; collage and digital image manipulation; text and instruction score; and use of found and repurposed objects. Her work deliberately challenges notions of discipline specific categorisation and dissemination, placing itself across the boundaries of fine art, performance and pop music/culture.
Her work could be described as falling into two specific areas. As a musician and sound artist she is a member of the electronic pop outfit Sleeps in Oysters (8 commercial releases and performances alongside A Hawk and a Hacksaw, Max Tundra, James Yorkston and Efterklang) and noise-improv group Rutger Hauser. Her instruments include voice, electronics, and playback media. In visual and live art contexts she works in installation and performance. Past works have involved the building of large-scale environments or installations within which she undertakes long duration, sounding performances - in some cases living and making music within the installation for weeks at a time. More recently her installation and performance practice has been concerned with exploring unusual locations, durations, equipment and techniques in experimental DJ practices, blurring the lines between the two aforementioned areas of her practice.
Open to UAL students and staff, no booking required.
