Gillian Lever is a sound artist and composer whose interests include the relationship between sound and space, auditory perception of spatial cues, and how listeners describe their sonic experiences. She makes finely detailed, meticulously constructed works which engage with personal histories and resonate with the embodied listener. Gillian completed a Bachelor of Fine Arts (Sound) at RMIT University, Melbourne, in 2017, and is a founding member of Starlings Spatial Sound Collective. She is currently undertaking a Master of Design by Research degree in spatial sound at the School of Design, RMIT.
Gillian composed the live, surround sound score for Watson’s critically-acclaimed Moosehead-award winning show Go To Hell (2017), and for their Jhonsey award winning show Once Were Planets (2013). She has also composed sound for works by choreographers Amanda Lever (Dasein, 2013; Hypnagogia, 2015), Anna Seymour (Distraction Society, 2016; remount 2017) and Chelsea Byrne (Human Sized Box, 2015).
