Nottsong performance @ Arnolfini, Bristol, 22 Sept 23

“Fusing words, voices and music, film and electronic text-work into a singular, dreamlike and mesmerising whole, Nottsong is both ancient and contemporary, personal and political, and explores what it means to be in the dark” With new vocal composition by Gavin Bryars. Ticket sale now open!


“How you speak will be used against you”. New iteration of my work “Say: Parsley” around language violence and belonging. This time exploring the still palpable injurious shibboleth threat of Irish by English. Created with my main collaborator Ciarán O’Meachair.

“RIDE” @ the British Library, 6 July-26 Nov

I have a special affection for this audiopiece around love, erotics and love as practice. Speaking it while writing it as a recording. Now programmed as part of “Breathe In, Breathe Out”, a new programme of displays within their Treasures Gallery dedicated to exploring new ways of experiencing words. Beat the Summer heat and sit back and enjoy the sounds in this cool and peaceful room.
