Thursday 8 December 2016, 7.30pm, The Old Church, Stoke Newington
Please note that this event does not take place in the Cafe.
For the third night of her reisdency, Irish composer and performer, Áine O'Dwyer presents a very special one-off performance in the stunning setting of the Stoke Newington Old Church - one of the oldest churches in London. Áine will be performing throughout the space and on the church's own organ.
Áine O’Dwyer's role lies somewhere between the roles of 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 albums 'Locusts' and 'Gegenschein'.
Her recent album 'Gallarais' experiments with acoustic decay, and was developed during a self-made residency at the Brunel tunnel shaft, London. Her work celebrates her interests in found and forgotten spaces, chance choreographies, acoustic phenomena, the act of listening and the search for alternative scoring 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'.
