Residence: Montréal, Canada

Kathy Kennedy is a sound artist with formal training in visual art as well as classical singing. Her art practice generally involves the voice and issues of interface with technology, often using telephony or radio transmission. She is also involved in community art, and is a founder of the digital media centre for women in Canada, Studio XX, as well as the innovative choral group for women, Chœur Maha. Her “sonic choreographies” — large-scale sonic installation / performances for over 100 singers and radio — have been performed internationally. She is on faculty in Electroacoustics at Concordia University in Montréal and conducts the chamber choir there. She frequently gives lectures and workshops on the voice, listening skills, acoustic ecology and improvisation, sharing her time between Montréal and the Gaspé region of Québec.
