Anna Walker in mixtape #IWD
Anna Walker was selected to be included in Mixtape #IWD, a two day multi-channel sound installation of experimental electronic music and sound art. This “cinema for the ear” is hosted by the Department of Creative Arts, Media & Music at Dundalk Institute of Technology (DkIT) to celebrate International Women’s Day 2019. This event brings together a wide array of music and sound art which celebrates womanhood.
The event, curated by composer Dr Hilary Mullaney, Lecturer in Music at DkIT, is a response to the wider issue of representation; imbalances exist in genres such as experimental electronic music, and often female artists are overlooked, and many forgotten historically. Given the strong team of female staff and students in Music at DkIT, and seeing the importance of exposing students to female composers and sound artists, Dr Mullaney dispatched an international open call for works, resulting in an overwhelming number of submissions from all genders. Given the wealth of both female composers and gender based research being conducted in Music at Dundalk IT, this seemed like an ideal time to host this event.
The event is being launched by Dr Sheila Flanagan, Vice President, DkIT at 11am on Thursday, 7 March, in the PJ Carroll Building and the installation runs all day Thursday and Friday
Entry is free and open to the general public.
