Karen Power’s compositions utilize two primary sources: acoustic instruments and everyday sounds, spaces, and soundscapes. Her works are experienced as concert music, sound art, expanded instruments, real and imaginary sonic environments, and as multi-sensory moments. She is an active improviser, who specializes in using environmental and everyday sounds/places as catalysts for constructing new sonic spaces. She performs as both a soloist and as ensemble member with notable artists such as David Toop, Mazen Kerbaj, and others. She is a former DAAD scholarship holder of the Berlin Artist Program. In 2017, Karen Power became chair of Sounding the Feminists, a collective seeking equality in music across Ireland.
