- Sophea Lerner
Sophea Lerner is a radiomaker, sound engineer and new media artist based in Delhi. During her Residency, she was based in Helsinki, Finland where she taught media and sonic arts at the Centre for Music & Technology. Her work combines experimental radio and new media art into a collaborative practice that explores audience interaction through movement and sound. She is currently affiliated with the Khoj Workshop and Sarai-CSDS, where she is currently engaged in practice based research towards a Doctor of Creative Arts at University of Technology, Sydney.
Lerner's work brings together experience in group devised physical performance with many years of experimental radio and new media art into a collaborative art practice which explores mediated temporal experience. Her radiomaking encompasses intricately composed radiophonic projects as well as engineering and production and collectively devised, rapidly executed semi-improvised live broadcasts. Community and creative networks are integral to collaborative aspects of her practice.
