This proposal is for Culture Ireland support for the tour of acclaimed Irish musician and artist Áine O’Dwyer to Australia and New Zealand in May 2017.Liquid Architecture
Liquid Architecture is an Australian organisation for artists working with sound. LA investigates the sounds themselves, but also the ideas communicated about, and the meaning of, sound.
Our program stages encounters and creates spaces for sonic experience, and critical reflection on sonority and systems of sonic affect. To do this, we host experiences at the intersection of contemporary art and experimental music, supporting artists to produce performances and concerts, exhibitions, talks, reading groups, workshops and recordings in art spaces, music venues and other sites.
The Audio Foundation was founded in 2004 by Zoe Drayton to support, promote and preserve sound art and experimental music etc in NZ.
Initially a virtual infrastructure, the Audio Foundation quickly became a Charitable Trust and began presenting programs such as Altmusic, publishing the Dirt Beneath the Daydream CD that went out to 9000 subscribers in the Wire magazine, the Erewhon Calling publication, and other initiatives such as the A/V Library.Tour Itinerary

Áine O’Dwyer is an Irish musician based in London whose recent double album of improvised organ music, Music for Church Cleaners vol. I & II, is a modern minimalist magnum opus of the highest order.
With a background that combines Irish traditional music and contemporary performance, Áine has created a multi-layered, exploratory, and experiential work that begs questions of historicism and the social proximities of the everyday, as well as the presumed nature of records themselves.
