Sounding-out used and disused sacred spaces, O’Dwyer glides effortlessly between contemporary performance art and the folk traditions that form her musical heritage. Sometimes ornate and fragile, and at others, forceful, even terrific in its vigour, O’Dwyer’s improvisational minimalism has won praise in The Wire, The Quietus, BOMB Magazine, the-attic.net, FACT and Pop Matters.

“Like an invisible banshee haunting the pipes of the church’s organ, O‘Dwyer pummels us with gothic drama from her concealed lair above the altar, the crimson uplighting painting a scene straight from the mind of Dario Argento.” - Fact, http://www.factmag.com/2016/11/23/le-guess-who-2016-review-music-sounds-different/

“As with all improvised music, you come upon something and you follow it. Also, I was always interested in slowing down Irish music, allowing for the melody to become elongated. Because the melodies are beautiful, and they are in touch with something other than ourselves, in touch with the land, with nature.” - Interview in Bomb Magazine
