Singer and sound artist working across experimental music and  contemporary art.
I work as a sound artist and researcher on voice, intended both as an abstract matter, with its functionality and specificity sung and spoken, and as a narrative medium for mythopoeic speculations.  Read more ︎

Over the last few years, studying voice has led me to an in-dept reflection on the relationship between animal communication and feminism, within a transhumanist theoretical framework.

My research has crossed different formats such as concerts of imaginary characters, radio plays, sound dresses and collective activities for voices and magnetic tapes.

I performed among others at (Barcelona), BOZAR (Bruxelles), Jazzorca (Mexico City), Punctum (Prague), OGR (Turin), NUB Project Space (Pistoia) and Lademoen Kunstnerverksteder (Trondheim). In 2019, I took part to Moondog Project in colaboration with Lapsus Lumine Ensemble and guest musicians Jim Black (drums) and Ernst Reijseger (cello).
