Mary Edwards


Mary Edwards is a composer, songwriter, sound artist and designer whose work encompasses environmental and architectural installations, film and theater scores and interdisciplinary projects. Themes of temporality, impermanence, nostalgia, and the natural world are interspersed throughout her work. Her recordings have been described by Time Out NY as "...evocative of epic cinematic scores combined with the poetic and lyrical intimacy…" Her recent writings can be found in Invert/Extant (U.K.), The Mentor that Matters series, the Joy Has a Sound: Black Sonic Visions anthology, and her forthcoming book on the soundscape of Apollo Beach, Conservation/Conversation. In 2021, The Grimshaw-Gudewicz Art Gallery (MA) produced her first career survey of sound works in conjunction with Something to (Be)Hold, her first large-scale public sound installation. Other projects have been commissioned and/or curated by The Provincetown Museum, The Beach Institute, Tybee Island Marine Science Center, The Joshua Tree Cultural Preservation Center, Indivisible Gallery, 429 Architectural Spaces and The William T. Davis Conservancy, ACA Soundscape Fieldstation and Headlands Center for the Arts. In 2022, she will participate in The Arctic Circle Residency sailing expedition around Svalbard (the Norwegian archipelago between mainland Norway and the North Pole), where she will collect, then convert, glacial geology and ocean data into music and sound. She currently lives between New York City and Savannah.
