Martin Art Gallery, Muhlenberg College, Allentown, PA 18104
January 20 – February 20, 2016
Works on display include US and international artists David Faithfull, Cathy Lane, Paul Martin, Brian Nissen, James Walsh and Chris Welsby, and the exhibition will be accompanied by a catalog and essay by the Curator.
This exhibition presents six artists that are engaged in mapping through intensive research of either the land or sea or both but without conforming to any “conventional signs” other than those they have invented. In this case the artist’s tabula rasa transforms into a personal meditation on place, evoking both palpable and mythological sites presented through varied media.
I am delighted to be talking about ‘Playing with Words: Spoken language as material for composition’ on the invitation of Dr. Fernando Estenssoro, director(s) of the Instituto de Estudios Avanzados de la Universidad de Santiago de Chile, and artists and poet Dr Felipe Cussen as part of his Fondecyt Regular funded research project ‘Samples and Loops in contemporary Poetry.’

We are delighted to present an evening of sound works and new music compositions curated by the electroacoustic composer and sound artist Brona Martin, with the support of the Octopus Collective. This concert “Full of Noises” will consist of a selection of multi-channel diffusion and spatial audio works from internationally established female artists.
As part of a PRS ‘Women Make Music’ commission Brona Martin curated a concert for the Full of Noises Festival 1st August 2015, Barrow-in-Furness. This concert featured works by female composers who explore the themes of story telling and soundscape in their work. This concert was also performed in Café Oto, London and will now feature as part of the Women in Sound/Women on Sound Symposium, Lancaster.
