LJ recently completed treatment for breast cancer. During the chemotherapy section of her treatment, she made a short film for the BBC to show what’s involved - in order to demystify the experience for others touched by the disease.
An excerpt from LJ’s performance at the AI for Good Culture Night event at the UN Palais in Geneva, Switzerland. A brief history of music technology - complete with musical examples - and how art and innovation will forever be intrinsically linked.
LJ’s quirkier concepts and installations featured everywhere from the UK’s Science Museum to international EDM festivals.
LJ Rich has a remarkable and rare neurological condition called synaesthesia. A kind of ‘mingling of the senses’ - instrumental in her memory, pattern recognition skills and ability to identify and codify music incredibly rapidly. She was invited to speak in Tokyo about her intense musical experiences, and how she created installations to convey those feelings to an audience.
