WordsnWaves is a collaborative project which produced two live performances involving bespoke digital technologies and the spoken word in 2018. The aim of this project is to establish a creative collaboration and knowledge exchange between experienced practitioners of music technology (Daniel Herbert) and literary performance (Aidan and Miriam Dooley) within the School of Music and Performing Arts. The project seeks to explore the intersections between text, music, sound, visuals and theatre in live context through the creation and use of bespoke software in response to the spoken word.

Richy Carey is a sound artist and composer. Broadly speaking, his work looks at the way we listen to film, thinking about what the sound of an object or material is, not the sound it makes. He’s currently doing AHRC funded PhD research into the relationship between materiality, language and film sound at Glasgow University.
