Composer Karen Power has listened and recorded in some of the world’s most isolated and challenging locations: the Arctic, Amazon, Namib Desert, Outback Australia and most recently Antartica.

Discovering the uniqueness of each environment through every day sounds is a core element of her practice. While on residency at the CCI she will undertake the composition of Antarctica Speaks, Listen to be performed by the RTÉ Concert Orchestra combined with full frequency field recordings of the rotating, shifting, shrinking icebergs. This residency is co-funded by our partner Contemporary Music Centre.
