hearmleoþ—gieddunga was created between 2016-2018 as part of a collaborative project in three stages. lauren redhead created scores, texts, samples, and concepts for performance. alistair zaldua then took part in the realisation of the works for live performance through the development of performance practices and live electronic interfaces. in the final stage of the project, lauren and alistair were joined in the studio by josh cannon who contributed creative studio practices and mixed and mastered the finaltracks. this music is therefore a result of live performances, studio composition and of collaborative exchanges.
