Biography C. Lavender is a New York based multi-disciplinary sound artist, sound healing practitioner and educator whose work spans through live performance, recording, installations, videos and workshops. She seeks to create an immersive aural landscape for the listener, an experience which is intensely physical, emotional and ultimately cathartic as noted in a performance review from the Village Voice; "downright iconic, charged with meaning and transgression." C. Lavender has performed, lectured and hosted workshops at Hirshhorn Museum, Issue Project Room, The Rubin Museum, MoMA PS1, The Stone, The Brooklyn Botanic Garden, Fridman Gallery, and RPI University among other venues. She studied Deep Listening with its founder Pauline Oliveros while volunteering at The Deep Listening Institute. In 2016 she taught a ten-week class for children about the scientific and artistic aspects of sound. C. Lavender has albums and recordings featured on the labels Ecstatic Peace!, RVNG Intl, Primitive Languages, and Hot Releases.
