Dublin, County Dublin
Stephen Roddy is a musician, composer and sound artist with a body of work that spans electroacoustic music, data driven music, sonification, guitar, dance, theater and sound art installation work. His current focus is on the phenomenology of embodiment and how the relationship between body and mind shapes the audiences experience. This work often attempts to bridge artificial distinctions between digital and physical, electronic and acoustic that often act to limit sonic expression. His electroacoustic compositions draw upon the audiences shared experiences of musical embodiment and have recently included a sonification element. His guitar work explores the role of the electric guitar as a physicalising presence, which provides grounding for seemingly discorporate sound worlds in the shared bodily experiences of an audience.
