Lambert Segura (b. 1995 in Lyon, France, lives in Glasgow, Scotland) is an interactive and sound artist whose work mediates identity of ecosystems through relationships to space and its plasticity. With an emphasis on acoustics, ecology and astronomy, Lambert’s research focus on the naturalist characteristics of machines’ and environment’s autonomous creative agency. It involves the design of custom open-source tools to enhance performers’ intuition through haptic interfaces and the development of autonomous creative artificial systems, effectively bridging Human and Artificial Intelligence. Lambert has graduated from The Glasgow School of Art in Interaction Design (with First Class Honours) and studied Sculpture at Geneva University of Art and Design in Switzerland. Former conservatoire student, they have also grown on being an internationally acclaimed violinist and improviser. Working across extreme and avant-garde music with the likes of Sandy Evans, Joëlle Léandre or Alvin Curran, their violin compositions feature on Saor’s 2020 Scottish Alternative Music Award winning album Forgotten Paths. They have been compared to Aly Bain by the Irish Sun and their work is set to be featured on the BBC this year.
