Chester Lusk is a sonic artist, based in London, interested in exploring sound and its physicality in space. He is currently involved in an artistic collaboration with the artist Olivandro, and has recently exhibited at the Bank Space Gallery, London Metropolitan University, in the exhibition Ambivalent.
On the 14th of December 2014, on the occasion of dontdrinkthemilk#1, Chester will be involved in a collaborative performance with artist Liz Miller, where he will interpret a sequence of her etchings with his electronic analog instruments. In this interview, conducted on the 30th of November 2014 at Chester’s home studio in London, we asked him a series of questions relating to his interest in sound and what drew him to this collaboration with Liz. The ultimate goal was to question both the definition and the meaning of performativity in a context of visual translation.
