St. Louis, MO – Electronic sound artist and musician Emily Lacy is a member of the Los Angeles-based arts collective known as Machine Project.

Mixing elements of traditional folk music together with technology, tape loops, film, and other media she creates a sound that is both familiar yet hard to place.

She has performed in exhibitions at MOMA, The Whitney Museum of American Art, and will be performing from 1-3PM at the St. Louis' Contemporary Art Museum.

Lacy explained her philosophies about making music and art to St. Louis Public Radio's Adam Allington.
