LOUISE LE DU
Musician captivated by chaotic, untamable sound patterns. My work follows a strong desire for poetry. I am intrigued by its ability to open spaces where the imaginary invades the real, subtly changing our modes of expression and ways to experience the world. I pay particular attention to sonic environments which are not easily accessed by humans – especially at the microscopic scale – using technology as a tool to feed the imagination with natural phenomena.
