Poems for Daedalus
Friday 9th November 2018
Áine O'Dwyer created a sequence of new performances for Athens, activating the architecture of the space and atmosphere of the neighbourhood. A playful exploration of the unique music of the building.
The event marked the launch of Poems for Play, a book inspired by her recent participation in the Sounding Paths residency on the island of Syros.
Áine O'Dwyer 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 space as-extension-of-instrument is a cornerstone of her artistic investigation and the crux of her live performances and recorded works to date; Gallarais, Beast Diaries, Sound Walks from Medjugorje, Music for Church Cleaners, Locusts and Gegenschein.
