C. Lavender is a Hudson Valley, New York-based sound artist, sound healing practitioner, and educator whose work spans through live performance, recording, installations, videos, compositions, 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 performed, lectured and hosted workshops at Hirshhorn Museum, Issue Project Room, The Rubin Museum of Art, MoMA PS1, The Stone, The Brooklyn Botanic Garden, Fridman Gallery, The New School, and Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute among other venues. In 2016 she taught a ten-week class for children about the scientific and artistic aspects of sound. C. Lavender has albums and recordings featured on the labels Ecstatic Peace!, RVNG Intl, Primitive Languages, and Hot Releases.
