Lauren Sarah Hayes is a composer and performer from Glasgow who works with combinations of bespoke software, prepared piano, analogue monosynths, drum machines and live electronics. Her practice explores new strategies for live electronic performance by investigating the performer's physical relationship with the digital realm, and seeking to deepen this through the medium of touch. She is a regular improviser, collaborating in duos/trios (Můstek, Monosynth Orchestra) and also performing with large-scale ensembles (Edimpro).
She enjoys performing her music around the world, and recent ventures include BEAM (London), Sonorities (Belfast), NIME (Oslo), ICMC (Slovenia) and EMS (New York). She has been supported by artistic residencies at EMS (Stockholm) in late 2011, and STEIM (Amsterdam) in 2012.
