Ingrid  Plum


Ingrid Plum (UK/DK) is an artist and composer who uses her voice with extended technique, improvisation, field recordings, percussion and electronics.

Described by The Guardian as “gorgeously atmospheric vocal techniques woven around field recordings & electronics” she has performed and exhibited internationally since 2002, creating work that combines Film, Folk Music, Contemporary Classical Music and Sound Art.

Born in Copenhagen, Denmark, Plum is a student of Meredith Monk, combining her research in folk traditions, extended technique and phonography to create interdisciplinary work.

She is currently Visiting Research Fellow at Goldsmiths, UoL and her recent film works on pandemic listening practices have contributed to the Auraldiversities series at the Sound Practice Research Centre at Goldsmiths.

Her publications are taught as part of curriculum at Mills College and Sonic Arts Research Centre at Queen’s University, Belfast, and are archived at The British Library, Meredith Monk’s House Archive, BBC Radio 2 Cecil Sharp Collection, And Ekho – Women In Sonic Art Archive.

Plum is 2nd Year Tutor and Associate Lecturer on BA (Hons) Sound Arts, and her approach to teaching centres on the practical application of research through practice with a focus on demystifying methodologies through discussion and experiential research.

Her work in activism through Bechdel, a platform for female and non-binary identifying artists, informs her teaching to create an inclusive learning space where she supports students to develop individual and informed perspectives.

Her recent performances have been described as “succinct and nourishing... a luxuriant space between almost excessive precision and looser improvisation" by The Wire.

Her work has been featured in The Quietus, reviewed by The Wire, played by Late Junction and Unclassified on BBC Radio 3, and performed live in session at Maida Vale Studios.

Plum was commissioned for International Women’s Day 2019 by The Verb and was interviewed for the New Weird Britain series for BBC Radio 4.
