LOUISA LOVE is an Edinburgh-based artist and creative producer working experimentally in sound, music, performance, sculptural practice and collaborative/curatorial activity to explore expanded notions of voice. 


Her practice is guided by interests in the intersections and instabilities of thought, matter, language and place and their various modes of transmission. This has come to be focused within the field of sound and experimental audio composition, working responsively with specific contexts or environments and through various improvisational processes to investigate sound and the human voice as intimate physical material.

The instability of the individual voice, the multichannel nature of the thinking-doing body and subsequent poetic collapses in meaning are central to Louisa's work. She is increasingly interested in sounding and listening as a kind of archaeological research - a means to move beyond words or cohesive thought to find the enigmatic connections between people/bodies, nature, land and their specific histories, qualities and stories. Her work is presented across site-specific projects, exhibitions, performances and radio broadcasts.

Louisa's practice also takes an interest in collaborative and co-authored ways of working, and

exploring production through experimentation within activity such as organising, writing, thinking and communicating. Through her personal and creative upbringing on the Kent/south east coast of England, including work with numerous regional organisations, she maintains a strong interest in the role of place in identity and the cultivation of long-term relationships as a basis for creative place-making, agency and community.

From 2013-15 Louisa was part of Collaborative Research Group, an interregional post-academic research, education and curatorial programme running from CRATE in Margate, Kent. 


She is a former committee member of Embassy Gallery in Edinburgh and has worked as a director of Dover Arts Development (DAD) with Joanna Jones & Clare Smith.

Since 2018, she mostly works collaboratively with Clive McLachlan Powell as

Edinburgh-based sound artist duo OOR_Scintilla.
