Ella Finer


Ella Finer’s work in sound and performance spans writing, composing and curating with a particular interest in how women’s voices take up space; how bodies acoustically disrupt, challenge or change the order of who is allowed to occupy – command – space. She has performed and spoken in galleries, theatres and with broken records, voice scores and speech choirs. Her ongoing project Sound Politics queries the ownership of cultural expression through sound, informing her recent curated events Selector Responder: Sounding out the Archives at the British Library (as part of their Season of Sound 2017-18) and a series of events/workshops provoked by issues of representation in the year of Vote 100. She is a 2018 Sound and Music Composer-Curator and a trustee of Longplayer (longplayer.org).
