Brona joined us as Postdoctoral Research Associate in September 2020. She is working on the AHRC-funded project ‘A Sonic Palimpsest: Revisiting Chatham Historic Dockyards’, led by Dr Aki Pasoulas with Dr Andrew Knight-Hill as the Co-Investigator from the University of Greenwich. Brona’s work explores narrative in electroacoustic music, acoustic ecology and spatialisation techniques through the creation of metaphorical and real-world representations of soundscapes. Her research also looks at ways in which creative music technology can be more inclusive and diverse through the facilitation of community engagement projects. She is currently exploring ways in which different media are being used to bring soundscape studies into the wider community through VR projects, smart phone applications and streaming technologies.
Her works have been performed internationally at EMS, ACMC, ICMC, NYCEMF, ISSTA, ZKM, BEAST, MAAST, Balance/Unbalance, SSSP, iFIMPaC, Sonorities and MANTIS.
Brona is also a member of the IKO Spatial Audio - SOUND/IMAGE Research group at the University of Greenwich.
She has received 'Develop Your Creative Practice' funding from Arts Council England for a proposal on 'Immersive Interactive VR' which will explore soundscape composition, installation art, gaming technologies and spatial audio using the IKO speaker at the University of Greenwich.
