Performance

Sally Golding’s live performances are overdriven, edgy configurations of light and sound which push the threshold of composition through sonified lighting, physical intervention and generative systems. Optic-noise harnessed from laboratory strobe lights, camera flash units, LED lighting and the act of projection sweep through her live sets which have taken place across galleries, audiovisual festivals, and sound art and club venues.
