Biography C. Lavender is a Hudson Valley, New York based sound artist, healer, and educator whose work spans through live performance, recording, installations 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 lectured and hosted workshops at Hirshhorn Museum, The Rubin Museum, MoMA PS1, The Brooklyn Botanic Garden and RPI University. In 2016 she taught a ten-week class for children about the scientific and artistic aspects of sound. C. Lavender's 2017 full length album, “Vanishing Light,” was recorded in a semi-abandoned school turned county mental health center in Hudson, NY.
