Join us at e-flux on Thursday, March 14 at 7pm for Spirit Catchers, a live performance by Annea Lockwood. The participants of the performance, Liz PhillipsSam GreenSanna Almajedi, and Annea Lockwood herself will bring an object that they have possessed for many years—something sentimental that holds a lot of meaning for the owners. They will then share stories about the objects while their voices are mixed together by Adrian Rew. The performance will be followed by a short talk between Lockwood and the participants. 

New Zealand-born American composer Annea Lockwood (b. 1939) brings vibrant energy, ceaseless curiosity, and a profound sense of openness to her music. Lockwood’s lifelong fascination with the visceral effects of sound in our environments and through our bodies—the way sounds unfold and their myriad “life spans”—serves as the focal point for works ranging from concert music to performance art to multimedia installations.

In recent years Lockwood and her music have received widespread attention, including a Columbia University Miller Theatre Composer Portrait concert, a feature article in the New York Times, a SEAMUS Lifetime Achievement Award, a documentary film by director Sam Green, and most recently, election to the American Academy of Arts and Letters. Her recent collaborative works Into the Vanishing Point with the ensemble Yarn/Wire and Becoming Air with avant-garde trumpeter Nate Wooley were released on Black Truffle Records to great acclaim. Her work has been presented internationally at institutions and festivals such as Lucerne Festival, Tectonics Athens Festival, Signale Graz, Counterflows International Festival of Music and Art, Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival, and many others.

Lockwood has received commissions from numerous ensembles and solo performers, including Bang On A Can; baritone Thomas Buckner; pianists Sarah Cahill, Lois Svard, and Jennifer Hymer; the Holon Scratch Orchestra; Essential Music; Yarn/Wire; and Issue Project Room.

Her music is recorded on labels Lovely, XI, Mutable, Pogus, EM Records (Japan), Rattle Records, Recital, Harmonia Mundi, CRI, Superior Viaduct, Black Truffle, New World, Gruenrekorder, and Moving Furniture Records. Hearing Studies, co-authored with Ruth Anderson, was published by Open Space in 2021.

The program of sound performances at e-flux is curated by Sanna Almajedi.
