Ava Halloran is a Swiss-American sound artist based in Marseille. Graduate from University of the Arts London with a MA in Sound Art, her work and research focus on the ephemeral nature of sound, particularly the (in)audible and the (in)visible, to address sound ecology and perception matters.
Through dreams, listening and exploring environments, she combines field recordings, electronics and voice to materialize her art projects. Her creations are articulated around musical performance (electro-acoustic), sound collage and poetic cartography. Re-imagining static ideas of language and perception, her art is a process of connection and revitalization.
