Zoë Mc Pherson

Zoë Mc Pherson is an interdisciplinary artist based whose kaleidoscopic output channels a myriad of sources and research including Inuit culture, hybridity, Kurdish feminism, Vodun polyrhythms and the practice of Cat's Cradle.


Her most recent work 'String Figures' is an ongoing trans-global art project fusing electronic sound, ethnomusicological research, video art and choreography into a rich audiovisual tapestry that collapses worlds, histories and timeframes. Released on SVS Records in March 2018 with a series of films directed by Alessandra Leone, the album explores an array of dualities - traditional/contemporary, organic/electronic, historical/futuristic - with its core theme of string as one of the most ancient and playful art forms with seemingly infinite possibilities. The project was awarded by Berlin music video awards, Berlin Independent Film festival, Australian center for moving image amongst others.

'Traditional Inuit culture meets techno-futurism in this beguiling audio-visual explosion' — NOWNESS

Her kinetic AV performance occupies a singular space at the intersection between forward-thinking club music, audio-visual culture and sound art, with recent performances including Boiler Room Berlin, La Concrete Paris, Eupen Meakusma Festival, Amsterdam De School, Nottingham Contemporary and Beursschouwburg Brussels.

Her DJ mixes are at the intersection between trippy field recordings and powerful percussive club music. Recent mixes include Rinse FM, Red Light Radio, the Lot Radio.

'String Figures manages to remain as challenging as it is danceable, and Mc Pherson’s electroacoustic blend packs an energetic physical punch' — The Wire

In 2019, Zoe is releasing three new singles on compilation albums by Weaponize Your Sound (Optimo Music), Bizzar Bazaar and Low Income Squad. She is also currently working on several collaborations with Rupert Clervaux, Christina Vantzou, Greetje Bijma and more yet to be announced.
