The voice

I am passionate about the human voice and its possibilities. As a unique and universal instrument, both simple and complex, powerful and fragile, the voice fascinates and intrigues me for years. My research into the possibilities of the voice brought me to contemporary music, free improvisation, electronic acoustic music and the development of vocal extended techniques. Currently I am researching about the confrontations between the voice and the electronics and how these two can influence and infiltrate one another. The idea to approach the voice as a sound material emerged from this research, where the voice is slowly dissociated from the physical organ producing it.

After studying singing at the Conservatory in Paris and a Bachelor degree in Singing from the Royal Conservatory of The Hague, I deepened my experience as a vocalist and performer of contemporary music. Currently I sing mostly in the context of improvised, contemporary and electro-acoustic music as a soloist and with various ensembles. I also developed a solo program of contemporary music for voice where I sing pieces by Georges Aperghis, Luciano Berio, Cathy Berberian, Morton Feldman, John Cage, among others. Since 2009, I have been collaborating as a singer/vocalist with different composers such as Kees Tazelaar, Bjarni Gunnarsson, Robert Blatt, Yiannis Kyriakydes and Sophocles Arvanitis.
