Miriama Young’s work explores the voice & the body in music, sound art & prose. This occurs through direct physical engagement in sound art installations (Solstice Lamp, an interactive sound and light experience for Vivid Sydney 2013); or through opera (Zen Story for Scottish Opera); or art song (Inner Voices of Blue); or though spoken word (The Prime Cut; 1, 000 Kisses; Speak Volumes); and sometimes using new technologies in conjunction with the voice, utilising bespoke hardware (Chatterbox, Titlipur); as well as representations of the synthesised voice and its mimicry (The Point of Contact); her work also explores the inverse: voiceless music (Speechless – The Polar Realm).

Inner

Inner is a music & film collaboration between filmmaker Richard Sidey and musician Miriama Young. Filming took place on the dynamic islands of Iceland & New Zealand in late 2011.

Richard Sidey, an independent filmmaker, professional nature photographer and media designer is based in Wanaka, New Zealand.
His recent work includes an award-winning thirty-minute experimental triptych film of the polar regions, Landscapes at the World’s Ends, and innovative music videos for Hana Fahy and Hazel Boot, the latter constructed entirely with a pinhole camera.
