About

Italian singer, sound artist, composer and performer.
"I want to be a membrane through which places, visions, sounds, memories, voices, travel. My work incorporates all the experiences I make by travelling."
Her work is multidisciplinary and focused on the connection between voice, sound, field recordings, body and improvisation. She investigates and explores the realm of acoustic sounds and electronic interfaces as extension of human voice. Art and life, sound and movement, the common line is the improvisation which leads her to research and to create new worlds.
"Everything spawns from the urgency I carry inside myself, and from the need to create an artistic dimension I belong to, an intimate and pure dimension devoid of any sort of strict rules, and shareable with whoever wishes to be part of it. A search towards the essence, leading to a continuous discovery of new worlds, real and unreal, deformed, imaginary, mystic, irriverent and extreme worlds. Tuning in with the outside, with space and events, actions become ritual, short circuit, a flow of alteration".
In 2001 studied Theater and dance at "Accademia Stabile del Musical",, in 2008 graduated with a bachelor of jazz music at Conservatory "N.Piccini" in Bari, Puglia where she studied with Roberto Ottaviano, Gianna Montecalco, Davide Santorsola.

She used to be based in Berlin, but she now travels around the world as a nomadic artist, and builds her research on the travel's experience.

tutto √® dettato dall’urgenza che porto dentro, dalla necessit√† di creare una dimensione artistica che mi appartenga, una dimensione intima, pura, avulsa da ogni tipo di regolamentazione imposta, e condivisibile con gli altri che vogliano farne parte. Una ricerca verso l’essenza che porti a scoprire continuamente nuovi mondi, reali e non, deformati, onirici, immaginari, mistici, dissacranti, estremi. In ascolto con l'esterno, con lo spazio,con gli eventi, l'azione diventa rituale, cortocircuito,flusso di alterazione
