With water up to her knees


For piano and tape:

Lerkenfeldt explores minimalist structures with stillness and intensity. Her imaginative process is poetic and precise; distilling new registers in the field of consciousness through electroacoustic composition, like a torchlight in the dark.

Alongside classical instrumentation, she augments abandoned technologies into new hybrid forms through handcraft, digitisation and experimental digital processing. Flickering piano, tape systems and their spatialised distortions unfold in repetitive motifs on With water up to her knees. In Before they were clouds, multi-layered acoustic refractions speculate on possible futures and atmospheres.

With water up to her knees is produced by Shelter Press in small series cassette single edition and digital with a limited pullout poster and poem by the artist. The work has its world premiere at eminent electronic arts centre the Substation, Melbourne on 24-25 November 2022, with a hybrid performance in collaboration with filmmaker Tristan Jalleh.

Written and recorded on unceded Wurundjeri and Boon Wurrung land, Summer 2022.
