My practice involves sound and sculptural installations, focusing on 3D multichannel sound that incorporate sculptural objects as performative devices. These objects span metal, plaster, polyurethane foam, concrete, and textile costumes, including the presence of sound equipment conceived as an open display. By exploring the sensibilities of urban spaces undergoing changes and pressures, my work stems from the acoustic environment and develops into abstract sonic textures of layered forms. I use samples of real voices from spontaneous encounters, found sounds, and a variety of sculptural materials related to my surroundings, weaving non-linear narratives with fragments of spoken words. I delve into sound’s textured quality including noise sources, infra-bass, and altered samples, highlighting the tension between acoustic presence and absence.
