Dayang Yraola (b.1976) Manila, Philippines

My practice focuses on process as media (archival and laboratory), technology as media (analogue, digital, mechanical, electronic), and senses as media; with research on ecology of art practices (art residencies,  sound practice communities), and sounding and listening cultures (Sonic Manila Research, since 2014).

I am an Assistant Professor at the University of the Philippines College of Fine Arts, and a Senior Lecturer at the College of Music. I serve as Curatorial Consultant for Museo Pambata (Children's Museum) in Manila since July 2019. I was founder and lead curator of art project series: Project Glocal (2011-2015) and Composite Noise(s) (2015-2018); curator of Jose Maceda Exhibit Series (2013, 2017 & 2018); and former Archivist and Collections Manager of the University of the Philippines Center for Ethnomusicology (2006-2015).

I was a recipient of Hong Kong Postgraduate Fellowship Scheme (2015-2016, 2018-2020),  Carlos Palanca Memorial Awards (2014), Japan Foundation Grants (2012, 2014 and 2015), Asian Cultural Council Grant (2012), and Singapore International Foundation Grants (2010 and 2012), among others.
