About the Artist:

Meara O’Reilly is a composer and artist focusing on perception and new musical interfaces. Her Hockets for Two Voices EP was released on Cantaloupe in 2019. It was named in several year-end Best Of lists, including Art Forum, Bandcamp, and Second Inversion. Sonic Youth’s Lee Ranaldo reviewed the EP for Talkhouse, saying it “sends you, moves you, destroys you with beauty“. Her work has been presented at Bang on a Can, National Sawdust, Los Angeles' Walt Disney Hall, SF Davies Symphony Hall, The Bauhaus Dessau, and as part of Bjork's world Biophilia tour. She is co-creator of the Rhythm Necklace app, a musical sequencer that uses two-dimensional geometry to create rhythm.
