Ash Fure: ANIMAL

“While it may seem impossible to bring a story to life without words, in [her] music, it’s the sounds that are alive, and they speak as much as words do, or perhaps even more.” Bandcamp Daily

Ash Fure is a sonic artist who blends installation and performance. Called “purely visceral” and “staggeringly original” by The New Yorker, Fure’s full-bodied listening experiences open uncommon sites of collective encounter. Recent immersive productions include The Force of Things: an Opera for Objects (2017), Filament: for Trio, Orchestra, and Moving Voices (2018), and Hive Rise: for Subs and Megas (2020). In 2023 Fure brought forth ANIMAL, a new solo venture. Pushing her visceral soundworlds to new physical heights, the project features custom synesthetic instruments that situate the body in athletic connection to sound, matter, light and site. Intrinsically live and architecturally responsive, ANIMAL seeks out a sonic sentience that stands in defiance to an age of A.I.
