Alan Dormer

Alan is currently undertaking a PhD in the University of Limerick, Ireland, where he is investigating the role sound plays in the shaping and creation of place. In conjunction with research, his practice, which is primarily site-specific sound art, deals with everyday places and sounds. Concerned with the eradication of place and an increase in placelessness and non-place, works often use the history of the site through acoustic memory in an attempt to relive and revive meaning and identity of the site and place. Other areas of interest include composition for contemporary dance, soundscape composition, field recording, and sound design for theatre and film.
