Lauren Sarah Hayes’s music is a mix of experimental pop/techno/noise/free improvisation, and has been described as ‘voracious’ and ‘exhilarating’. She is a sculptress of sound, manipulating, remixing, and bending voice, drum machines, analogue synths and self-built software live and physically. EEL TANK is the solo performance project of Santa Cruz based musician Nicki Duval (they/them), often with live 3D-modeled visuals by Daniel Mangosing (he/him). Drawing from their love of horror and sci-fi as well as a fascination with liquid, EEL TANK merges hard software techno with erratic vox and elements of queer performance.

Lauren Sarah Hayes

Lauren Sarah Hayes is a Scottish live electronics improviser and sound artist based in Tempe, AZ. Her music is a mix of experimental pop/techno/noise/free improvisation and has been described as ‘voracious’ and ‘exhilarating’. She is a sculptress of sound, manipulating, remixing, and bending voice, drum machines, analogue synths and self-built software live and physically. She is excited by what can happen in the vulnerable relationships between sound, space, and audience. The Wire described her 2016 album MANIPULATION (pan y rosas discos) as “skittering melodies and clip-clopping rhythms suggesting a mischievous intelligence emerging from this web of wires”. Her recent 2021 release Embrace (Superpang) was included in Bandcamp’s Best Experimental Music of February 2021. She is a member of the New BBC Radiophonic Workshop, Director-At-Large of the International Computer Music Association, and has published extensive scholarly writing on topics related to sound, haptics and touch, embodied and enactive music cognition, interdisciplinary improvisation, and site-responsive sonic art.
