A community choir, the Glad Cafe Choir emanates from Glasgow-based artistic hub of the same name. Áine O’Dwyer, (b. Co.Limerick, Ireland) lives and works between Ireland and the UK. She 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 holding space as-extension-of-instrument is a cornerstone of her artistic investigation and the crux of her live performances. Her most recent live works include Civil Twilight (Rhubaba Gallery, Edinburgh 2017), Down at Beasty Rock (CCA, Glasgow 2017), Poems for Daedalus (Daedalus street, Athens 2018) and Pianowalk (Novas Frequências, Rio de Janeiro 2018). Notable releases include Music for Church Cleaners, Beast diaries, Locusts, Gegeinschein, Gallarais and Poems for Play which was released on her publishing imprint Cloch.
