Lisa Greenaway is a sound artist and producer working in broadcast, live DJ performance and public installation. Trained as a specialist audio arts engineer at the ABC and with a background of spoken word performance, creative radio production and theatre sound design, Lisa combines technical finesse with an intuitive ear for the rhythm and melody in everyday sounds, spatial awareness and the construction of atmospheres using voice, music and field recordings. Lisa’s work ranges from radio art works, spoken word and music tracks and DJ sets to spatial sound installation works and poetry film. Working as DJ LAPKAT in Australia and Europe, Lisa mixes global rhythm and melody, multilingual poetry and story, collaborating with poets on spoken word, music and soundscape. LAPKAT presents the monthly podcast La Danza Poetica for Groovalizacion Radio (Europe) and Chimeres (Greece).
Ongoing research into the global phenomenon of oral storytelling and folk tradition informs all of Lisa’s work, alongside research into philosophies of deep listening, spatial sound design and sound meditation, with the aim to develop truly immersive and transformative listening experiences. In 2018 Lisa is in residence at the Spatial Sound Institute in Budapest, working with the 4DSOUND system.
