Rising Damp is the solo project of Dublin based visual artist and musician, Michelle Doyle. Originally a bass player in punk band Sissy, Damp expanded her practice to include drum machines, synths and spoken word. Current performances include materials from residencies in military harbour town, Cobh in Sirius Arts Centre and a Sleep Concert on Dublin Digital Radio. She collaborates frequently with art/techno collective, Repeater and has been featured in their publications and tapes in 2018 and 2019. Her music has been featured in The Quietus and The Guardian.
On the 8th of March 2019, Rising Damp played for an 8 hour Sleep Concert on Dublin Digital Radio. This set included spoken word, drone, field recordings and techno - all improvised.
This project was supported by Firestation Studios and the Arts Council.
