Her work includes broadcasts, soundworks, installations and audio publications that are often inspired by early communication technologies and archives.

Her creations have been played on BBC Radio4, France Culture’s Atelier de Création Radiophonique, Resonance FM, Kunst Radio, through the Radia network, and have been presented at radio festivals in over twenty-five countries around the world.

DinahBird and Jean-Philippe Renoult are sound and radio artists based in Paris. Through their solo and joint works they re-imagine and repurpose early communication and recording technologies such as radio waves, tape recorders, antennas, transistors, ghetto blasters, and undersea cables. They are interested in exploring the aesthetic, material and social aspects of transmission technology through electroacoustic compositions, sound installations, radio art, photography, and live performances.
