Kate Mahony (UK)

Kate Mahony Kate Mahony performed “Foley” at Hitparaden 2 Sampling traces its roots back to the technical experiments and manipulations of musicians and artists in the 1940s, finding its popular realisations in hip hop, electronic dance and industrial music of the 70s and 80s, Kate Mahony’s work is ad-hoc, transitory and lo-fi in production.
