Gwen Siôn is an experimental composer, pianist and multidisciplinary artist. Her work is primarily sound-based although she often incorporates elements of sculpture, moving image, photography and text to create multi-sensory installations. Her practice explores the architectural qualities of sound and is underpinned by landscape, mythology, ritual and synaesthetic crossovers. She is interested in acts of translation and transformation, using sound as a way to describe visual, physical and emotional experience. Her work often explores the idea of translating landscapes into sound and combines elements of ambient and electroacoustic music, minimalism and musique concrète. When creating sound works, she uses field-recordings, found objects and physical fragments of the landscape as instruments as well as creating original vocal, multi-instrumental and electronic compositions inspired by reading the environment as a musical score.
