I am a multidisciplinary conceptual artist. I focus on experimental music and sound art, which informs my research interests as an educator. Through sound sculptures, installations and performance works, I have been exploring the emotive and expressive qualities of the elusive medium of sound, particularly the voice.
Ahmed received her B.A in Studio Art and Political Science from Hiram College, U.S.A in 2012. To further examine the sounding of emotions through the female body, she pursued a Masters in Creative Practice at the University of Plymouth, where she began to transcribe chords and create an alternative scoring method for her own experimental sound moniker: Slowspin. Having studied the sound process and experience of seminal post-WWII (mid-20th to early 21st century) female performance artists and experimental musicians in the West, she is now interested in deepening her current investigations of the sonic and intellectual histories of female folk music from South Asia.
