Recovery in Sound

A Recoverist Month event

Recoverist = recovery + activist

Recovery in Sound by Quieting, a music producer, visual artist, and DJ with a background in the UK’s punk, hardcore and DIY indie scenes, has been working with a group of people in recovery from addiction and some with experience of homelessness.

Harnessing found sound, oral history recordings and electronic music production techniques she weaves experimental electronic and dance floor orientated sounds to explore time, reflection, ageing and embodiment through conceptualising the making of sound and deep listening as somatic practices.

This project, commissioned by Brighter Sound and developed in partnership with PORe, has been exploring recovery, storytelling, and statistics as a starting point for creativity.

Along with releasing her own music and sonic experiments, Quieting AKA Maeve Devine, has produced compositions for the sound tracks to short films which include the Trans Performance Exchange project and a video essay produced for The Witch Foundation. She is a regular guest DJ on Bidston Observatory Artistic Research Centre digital radio show Domes FM.

"Mark I'm absolutely buzzing of this tonight thank you so much for putting me onto it I was in the zone all the way thru loved it surreal quirky great mix," audience review.
