October - November 2021
Invited as artist -in-residence by Klangraum Krems and AIR Niederösterreich, Krems an der Donau, Austria, I will further develop Channeling for public presentation, as well as give a sound awareness workshop for childrens as part of the Kinder.Kunst.Fest (Children Art Festival) and will be presenting the various results of the residency in person in: Brno (Czechia), Vienna and Linz (Austria) and Bratislava (Slovakia).
During the residency period I have also been commissioned to participate in a collaborative project organised by Grünrekorder and to create an online presentation for Situated Sounds in Toronto, Canada.
A page dedicated to the activities of the residency will be available soon.
I was one of five international artists invited by Binaural Nodar to respond to and create work inspired by the rural village of Alva in the Videu region of Portugal.
I investigated how the water and sound energy of various springs and fountains in Alva can be transduced and translated as material traces, as part of my Traceable Echoes research. Locally sourced clay and discarded motors also went into creating the works.
