Kathy Kennedy

Kathy Kennedy is a sound artist with formal training in visual art and classical singing. Her art practice involves the voice and issues of technology, often using telephony or radio transmission. She is also involved in community art and is a founder of the digital media center for women in Canada, Studio XX, and the innovative choral group for women, Choeur Maha.  Her “Sonic Choreographies” are large scale sonic installation/performances for 100 singers and radio. They have been performed internationally including the inauguration of the Vancouver New Public Library and at the Lincoln Center’s Out of Doors Series. Ms. Kennedy currently teaches electroacoustics and audio art at Concordia University in Montreal. She frequently gives lectures and workshops on listening skills, acoustic ecology and vocal improvisation. Her solo performances include a high level of improvisation over lush soundtracks of painstakingly mixed vocals and other sounds to create an immersive world of different voices.
