Through a creative portfolio and critically reflective writing, this thesis explores how divergent sound-art practices can represent oral history narratives found in post-conflict societies, such as Northern Ireland and Bosnia. Recently collected interview materials have been transcribed, edited -and transformed through the application of a newly devised artistic methodology that draws on the field of verbatim theatre. This re-telling of personal narratives takes place through intertwining the practices of verbatim song-writing, sound design, live performance and installation art. The primary aim of this research is to increase access to the often forgotten knowledge found in individual experiences, thus augmenting more generalised historical narratives of marginalised communities.
