Vicki Hallett is a composer, versatile musician, sound artist, music practitioner and educator. Vicki has composed, produced and performed in live concerts, international conferences, solo recordings and videos ranging from chamber music to exploratory work with sound art, meditations, the Elephant Listening Project and acoustic ecology. Vicki travels the world recording nature’s sounds as well as improvising in acoustically interesting environments including Mabolel Rock (South Africa) with a pod of Hippopotami. Her focus is to document and record the ever-diminishing habitats and species of our planet.
Through her unique approach of combining acoustic ecology, scientific analysis and innovative performance practices, Vicki reshapes the role of interdisciplinary research.This exploration has led Vicki to develop a collaborative concept, with Cornell University's Elephant Listening Project. She is also producer, artistic director and performer in the concept performance group Habitat and co-curates the New and Experimental Arts Laboratory (NEAL).
