Matilde Meireles

Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Sonic Arts Research Centre, School of Arts, Queen's University Belfast

Matilde is a recordist, a sound artist, and a researcher who makes use of field recordings to compose immersive site oriented projects. Her works have been exhibited in Brazil, France, Germany, Greece, Mozambique, Portugal, Spain, and United Kingdom. She has recently completed a PhD in Sound Art at the Sonic Arts Research Centre, Queen’s University Belfast, where she is currently a post-doctoral Research Fellow.

Her work takes a holistic and interdisciplinary approach to site. It also further explores how the term site is used to refer not only to the physical site, but also the contextual, the experiential, and the virtual site. The projects often highlight participation and collaboration as catalysts for a shared understanding of place, and the role of technology in augmenting the experience of place.
