Lizzie Pogson

Lizzie Pogson (Trentham) is currently undertaking Honours in Sound Art at RMIT in Melbourne to develop her interest in sound and technology. Her recent commitments have included composing for the Melbourne International Arts Festival, performing with Philip Samartzis as part of the JOLT festival at Westspace Gallery and most recently composing a piece for the group show ‘Magnetic Traces’ which highlighted Australian & French sound artists (she has a track on the newly released Magnetic Traces CD). Her work presented here contains field recordings and synthesised sounds in which the borders between sounds are ambiguous and the listener questions their perception of reality. When she’s not constructing new music, she’s reviving old music, playing baroque violin with orchestras around Australia.
