Across the festival weekend Irish artist Áine O'Dwyer will choreograph a new commissioned project, devised and performed in collaboration with a local community, that captures the song and instrumentation of time, place and people in Bristol.
Áine creates live and recorded events which embrace the broader aesthetics of sound and its relationship to environment, time, audience and structure. The notion of a holding space as-extension-of-instrument is a cornerstone of her artistic investigation and the crux of her live performances. Her past live work commissions include Civil Twilight ( Rhubaba Gallery, Edinburgh 2017 ), Down at Beasty Rock ( CCA, Glasgow 2017), Poems for Daedalus ( Daedalus street, Athens 2018 ), Pianowalk ( Novas Frequências, Rio de Janeiro 2018), Accompaniment for Captives ( Open Ear, Ireland 2019 ) and Tracker Action Mimes ( Cafe Oto and Queens Hall Edinburgh 2019 ). Notable releases include Music for Church Cleaners, Beast diaries, Locusts, Gegeinschein, Gallarais and Poems for play which was released on her publishing imprint Cloch.
