Aine O'Dwyer

Áine O Dwyer is a vocalist, musician, improviser, composer, performer and visual artist. Her performances can take the form of living sound sculptures or assemblages which often bring into play mythical and satirical characters of Irish decent. In recent years, the pipe organ has become an integral site for her experimentation, culminating in the new albums ‘Locusts’ and ‘Gegenschein’. The forthcoming ‘Gallarais’ experiments with acoustic decay, and was developed during her self made residency at the Brunel tunnel shaft, London. All three releases celebrate her interests in acoustic phenomena, deep listening and the search for alternative scores through a combined performativity of instruments, drawings, space, time, memory and the body. Past solo releases include ‘Anything Bright or Startling? and ‘Music for Church Cleaners’.
