Musicians are sound makers. But that’s only half the story: a great musician is also a consummate listener. Being deeply attentive, hearing complexity, and noticing subtlety are not just professional music practices, but tenets for living. Learning to listen has radical potential.
Genevieve Lacey is a recorder virtuoso and serial collaborator. Passionate about creating new possibilities for her instrument, she has commissioned, created, premiered and recorded scores of new works. Genevieve plays music from ten centuries, taking her instruments into deserts, prisons, concert halls, laboratories, recording studios, theatres, classrooms and communities around the world. She has an international career as a soloist and a substantial recording catalogue with ABC Classics. Genevieve created en masse with London filmmaker Marc Silver, and the music for Namatjira, commissioned by Scott Rankin, Big hART and the Namatjira family. Her work has won multiple awards including an ARIA, Helpmann, Australia Council, Freedman and Churchill Fellowships. Genevieve holds academic and performance degrees (including a doctorate) in music and English literature from universities in Melbourne, Switzerland and Denmark.
