Alyssa Moxley accesses narratives of identity, place, space, and embodied experience through sound. She utilizes microphone techniques, field recording, interviews, composition, digital and analog sound design, speaker placement, and sculpture to create detailed sonic interventions and environments that relate to networks of memory and knowledge distribution.
Alyssa is an avid collaborator and has created works with musicians, filmmakers, photographers, dancers, and designers. Her solo and collaborative works have been heard and installed in venues and radio stations in London, Chicago, New York, Paris, Toronto, Dublin, Braga, Syros, Santorini, Starigrad, and Athens.
She studied ethnomusicology at the School of Oriental and African Studies, sound design at the London College of Communication, studio production techniques at the Banff Centre for the Arts, and an MFA in Studio Art in the Sound Department at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
Alyssa held a residency as part of 4DSOUND: Points On The Curve. She used her collection of engrossing field recordings to explore questions of individual and shared space, notions of receptivity and reciprocity in the corporeal, sound as spatial and emotional memory, and how sound can be transmitted through subjective, proprioceptive responses to the individual’s perception of place.
Alyssa is currently based in Athens where she also curates for the Kinisi Festival of Sound.
