Lucy Valentine

My contribution to the sound diaries open call is to explore the sonic responses to my work as a silversmith. To collate all sound reactions to the physical application of a variety of mediums, tools, techniques and processes to create an auditory landscape and diary during the creation of a physical object. 

I am a multidisciplinary musician and artist from the North East, UK. My work mainly focuses around experimental guitar, chordophones, the recent study of lute and early music alongside a decade or so in and out of a variety of bands, projects and collaborations. My recent release Vault of Heaven, came out on my electroacoustic cassette label The Crystal Cabinet. Vault of Heaven focuses on creating celestial soundscapes entirely from the historic mellotron and its tape soundscapes in reaction to the accompanying series of artworks.
