Kamryn McFarlane works in sound, installation, and performance. Her sonic and sculptural work explores subtle geological processes, cyclical weather patterns and the fluctuation of currents. Kamryn investigates the complicated relationship between technology, nature, and the body. She is interested in how one interacts within specific acoustic ecologies and attempts to provide different ways of listening to eco-acoustic cues as we navigate the climate crisis. Through data collection and translation, she creates undulating sonic landscapes through the methodical manipulation and dissection of field-recorded sound.
Kamryn holds an Honours Bachelor of Arts from the University of Toronto Mississauga. In 2019 she was the recipient of the Dr. Annie Smith Travel Grant and was also accepted into the Akin Studio Program at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Toronto. Kamryn is currently based between Montreal and a small town in rural Southern Ontario as she continues her explorations in acoustic ecology.
