Olivia Furey is a performance and sound artist originally from Sligo and based in Scotland. Olivia takes on a disruptive and hysterical persona in her performances, who vocally interacts with audiences in a challenging and absurd manner. Her performances are intense yet delivered with an element of humour. Her persona also involves being an amateur musician who invents instruments. She also searches for weird sounds through everyday objects such as doorbells and kids toys. Olivia’s performances also explore assertive noise-making through electric guitar, electronics, and sonic manipulation experiments. Olivia’s live performances generally hover between an experimental song and a disruptive, performative act.
Going Coastal is broadcast on Flirt Fm, BCRFM, RosFM, Wired Fm and Dublin Digital Radio. Each week a different host talks us through some of the music that they love.
