Matilde Meireles is a sound artist-researcher who makes use of field recordings to compose site-oriented projects. Her projects have a multi-sensorial and multi-perspective approach to site which draws from her studies and experience in areas such as sound art, site-specific visual arts and design. They are also informed by a longstanding interest in environmental sciences, architecture and geography. Her work is presented regularly in the form of concerts, installations, releases, and community-based projects.
Matilde often highlights collaboration and participation as catalysts for a shared understanding of place, developing project-based or long-term collaborations. She holds a PhD in Sonic Arts from the Sonic Arts Research Centre, Queen’s University Belfast, and is currently a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at University of Oxford in the project Sonorous Cities: Towards a Sonic Urbanism (SONCITIES).
