Edge Effects
Áine O’Dwyer presented in collaboration with Counterflows

Thu 27 July 2017

As part of the opening of the Edge Effects programme, Áine O’Dwyer will create a new performance exploring imagined territories, improvised landscapes and fictional habitats based on her series of mythical creature drawings, presented in collaboration with Counterflows.

Áine O’Dwyer's role lies somewhere between vocalist, musician, improviser, composer, performer, listener, sonic stalker and audience member. In recent years, the pipe organ has become an integral site for her experimentation, culminating in her new albums Locusts and Gegenschein. Her 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 found and forgotten spaces, chance choreographies, acoustic phenomena, the act of listening and the search for alternative scorings through a combined performativity of instruments, drawings, space, time, memory and the body.

This event is presented as part of Scottish Sculpture Workshop: Edge Effects; a programme of workshops, walks, sound work, film and performance that explore the complex co-dependencies between ecological, social, economic, and political phenomena.

Edge Effects runs from 27 - 30 July at CCA and sites across the city. For more details on the full programme visit: SSW Edge Effects.
