Ain Bailey is a sound artist and DJ living and working in London. She especially focuses on creating compositions involving diverse media, such as field recordings, synthesised materials and found sounds, which are inspired by ideas and reflections on silence and absence, architectural urban spaces, and feminist activism.

Bailey’s electroacoustic compositions are created for a variety of forms, including multichannel and mixed media installations, moving image soundtracks, and live performance.

Live performances of her work have taken place at Sonic CueB (2011) and Electroacoustics at the Sho-Zyg exhibition (2012). Bailey has collaborated with a range of artists including Sonia Boyce, where they created a sound and film installation entitled ‘Oh Adelaide’ (2010). Bailey’s recent compositions include ‘Ode To No. 6′ (2012), a meditation on the ‘unheard’ in her domestic space; ‘The Pitch Sisters’ (2012), a multichannel compositional response to a line contained within Leslie Thornton’s 1984 film ‘Peggy and Fred In Hell: The Prologue’, and more recently the soundtrack to Jordan McKenzie’s ‘Feral’ (2012).
