Curriculum Vitae

Alessandra Eramo (*1982, IT/DE) is a sound artist, vocalist and composer who works with performance and installation, video, drawing and text, exploring latent acoustic territories of the human voice and noise as socio-political matter. Combining visual art and experimental music, she develops artistic projects and conceptual performances that address questions of the body, memory and identity, often adopting participatory actions, field recording, site-specific modes, and experimental approaches to composition. Central to her practice is extending the voice in different sonic and visual contexts, crossing boundaries of genres and traditions.
