Shirley Pegna is a sound artist, musician and composer interested in sound as a material. Her practice encompasses both long distance and very close up realms of sound found in our environment. Her geographical reach has taken her sailing round the arctic in the early winter of 2018, where she immersed herself in sound and vibration from the top of the world. Recently she has been working on Brigstow Institute-funded research project The Unsettled Planet at Bristol University.
For Earth Din, Shirley's installation at BNM, she will collaborate on two performances with Welsh violinist Angharad Davies and composer-improvisor Dominic Lash.
