DinahBird

DinahBird is a sound and radio artist living and working in Paris and London. Her practice includes broadcasts, soundworks, installations and audio publications that are often inspired by early transmission technologies and archives. Her current interests include old weather, dead media, aeronautics, and high frequency trading. Recent commissions include A.V.I.O.N, a radio installation inspired by the world of aeronautics and Take Flight, a composed soundscape starring planes, drones and frequencies made with Jean-Philippe Renoult for ABC Australia’s Creative Audio Unit. Works have been produced for BBCRadio4 and 3, France Culture’s Atelier de Création Radiophonique, Resonance FM, Kunst Radio, Arteradio, through the Radia network, and have been presented at radio festivals in over twenty-five countries around the world. In 2011 she was awarded the Prix Luc Ferrari.
A copy of her radio record  A Box of 78s has been on an eighteen month journey around the world being passed from radio station to radio station in a sort of relay race – but slower, and without any other competitors. It is currently in transit somewhere between Serbia and Israel.
