Rachael Finney's work frequently deals with the relationship between listening, voice and the body. Working primarily in sound,video, installation and performance her work investigates the material qualities of the human voice, often dissecting it and dividing it from language in order to interrogate it as a new acoustic object. Her work makes extensive use of synthesised samples and analogue processes and has been utilised for exhibitions and recorded media.
This interest in sound and specifically voice originates from her background in DIY music (La La Vasquez/Edible Arrangements) where she continues to release work under the moniker R Elizabeth. She has upcoming releases on both Where To Now and Nightschool records. Previous releases include Cazenove, Comfortable on a Tightrope, M'Lady's, Savoury Days and Sex is Disgusting.
