About

Our bodies are spaces. Spaces are containers for compressed time (Lefebvre.) Our voices emerge from these spaces, containing the imprints of time and memory.

Amy’s work explores the psychological and emotional impact of sound, space, time, memory, and gender upon bodies, voices, and the construction of subjectivity. She works interdisciplinarily to explore these ideas through sound, vocalization, movement, installation, performance, video, photography, and extensive research. 

Her sound and performance work includes more than twenty years of composition, recording and performance, with significant international airplay of her 2014 solo release, "Chasing Sunshine." Two prior full-length releases include Diet Audio's 2012 release "The Silver Unicorn Club," and "Ecrasez L'infame" in 2006. Winner of the Cincinnati Entertainment Award for "Experimental/Electronic" music in 2006. Amy also conceptualized and created Electrofest, a multi-venue electronic music festival in Cincinnati with festivals in 2005 and 2006.

Amy's social practice includes The Anna May Project, a non-profit dedicated to ensuring that women across the world have a voice on issues impacting them.

Amy is an MFA candidate in Art Practice at the School of Visual Arts in NYC. She received her BA in Art History and Fine Art Photography from the College of Design, Architecture, Art and Planning at the University of Cincinnati, graduating Magna Cum Laude. She lives and works in NYC and Cincinnati.
