Sherre DeLys Documentary, Sound Art Producer, ABC RN
Sherre DeLys’ artistic experimentation with radio forms over two decades has been cited as an influence by leaders in the renaissance of radio storytelling, while her leadership in new modes of production and distribution saw her found POOL, an award-winning experiment in media art co-creation that ‘went from wild experiment to thriving online community and kick-started plenty of other ABC initiatives along the way’ (The Conversation). Her radio pieces have earned prizes for storytelling and sound design, served as springboards for dance and chamber orchestra, and crop up regularly within the ever evolving ecosystem of traditional and new radio networks around the world.
Collaborating with architects and visual artists, she’s created sound installations and sound sculptures for Biennale of Sydney, Sydney 2000 Olympics, Centre for Visual Art Cardiff, Westmead Childrens’ Hospital and other exhibitions and public spaces. She’s also created sound designs for Sydney Theatre Company and performed as an improvising vocalist using texts, electronics and tapes – from Sydney Opera House to outback tent shows. She’s currently a Tending Space Fellow and excited to be a judge for In The Dark Audio Award which highlights a new wave of global creativity and innovation in audio storytelling.
