"Barbara Lambert’s (b. 1977, France) practice explores the capacity of sound to impact our perception of environment using field recordings and improvisation techniques. She creates interactive sound installations and sound compositions that interrogate the possibility of sound paradoxes and create situations where contradictory sounds confront each other. Through these approaches, Lambert attempts to reconstruct the sounds of memories, often by returning and rerecording the sounds of physical spaces of her past in order to generate a sort of sonic snapshot or auditory environment."

Infernal thinks I like to do
Connecting IR sensors to my computer creating dialectical and aleatory compositional techniques
Staying outside waiting for the rain to stop (or not) so I can record sounds for hours
Building contact mics, interact with them and listen to the sounds I trigger using MAX msp patches that I design
Playing on a glockenspiel like a child
Playing the tuba as a horn boat and experimenting real time sound effects
Hitting the keys of my piano like an old cat
Saying that Pro tools is the best for sound editing and using Logic Pro and a MOTU 896 HD
Giving nicknames to my mics (Adieu Crystal Voice!)
