Áine O’Dwyer makes multi-layered works that celebrate chance choreographies, acoustic phenomena, acts of listening and the search for alternative scorings through instruments, drawings, space, time, memory and the body. In recent years she has developed a unique specialisation for improvisation with pipe organs, culminating in the albums Locusts and Gegenschein which follow her acclaimed Music for Church Cleaners. O’Dwyer’s works beg questions of historicism and the social proximities of the everyday, exploring sacred, found and forgotten spaces, and the animism of instruments: “As to the church organ itself, it seemed almost like a sample machine, like it could tap into sounds from different eras.”

In Brisbane Áine will perform a work for the organ (c 1890) at the heritage-listed Old Museum, (built a year later in 1891).

Also performing on the night will be Sydney-based artist and musician Kusum Normoyle, whose works explore the power of screaming, amplification, feedback and noise to disrupt and intervene in social space.

Presented by Institute of Modern Art, Liquid Architecture and Room40.

Áine O’Dwyer’s visit to Australia is supported by Culture Ireland.
