Working across song, sound, writing and analogue filmmaking, Irish artist Hilary Woods' diy practice cultivates processes that are in call and response to each other. Her evocative experimentalism and sonic excavations give way to the intimacy and tenderness of a deeply personal and intuitive song-writing. A sound embedded in visual potency, physicality and a moving majesty, her work is often presented alongside her own hand processed pieces on 16mm and super 8 film.  Hilary’s third full length record Acts Of Light (released on the 3rd of November 2023) is out now via Sacred Bones Records, with Boomkat UK releasing an exclusive edition. Live, her UK and European tours in 2023 are supported by Culture Ireland. Hilary is the recipient of the Arts Council of Ireland Film Project Award 2023.
