Hayley Suviste is a sound artist and composer based in Manchester. Hayley has recently completed a masters in Electroacoustic Composition at NOVARS sound research-centre (University of Manchester).
Her music focuses on the exploration of space, memory and narrative – transforming field recordings, oral histories and archival sounds into immersive compositions. Her output includes long-form multi-channel compositions, interactive soundwalks, installations, site-specific commissions, collaborative performances and works for fixed media & live electronics.
Hayley also works collaboratively around Manchester, having taken part in residencies with Delia Derbyshire Day, Push:Music, Both Sides Now (with Fatima Al Qadiri) and The Noise Orchestra. In these residencies she has worked alongside other emerging electronic musicians to create live-sets that fuse electroacoustic composition, modular synthesis, laptop music and visual art that have been performed at venues across Manchester.
She also co-runs The Manchester Ear, a soundwalk venture which aims to get communities involved with listening to the environment on excursions in and around Manchester.
