"Fantastic work. (...) Sounds almost like a musique concrète collage
made from Folkways LP about the removal of the larynx. But it's not!"

The Wire (UK)



"She embodies a noisy experimentation, in a crude art without concessions"

ALESSANDRA ERAMO is an artist who works with voice and noise. Mostly known for her Solo for Voice and Electronics, she creates performance pieces, text-sound compositions, site-specific installations, audiovisual works and drawings exploring latent acoustic territories of the human voice. The essence of her practice to destabilize the normal expectations of the voice in order to trace a new sense of beauty in sound and language.
Her artistic production often adopts relational aesthetics and addresses questions about memory and identity.

In 2017 she's invited artist at the 6th Thessaloniki Biennale of Contemporary Art to show Migratory Echoes, her installation/performance based on interviews to migrants about the sounds of their "Home". She has performed and exhibited at many electronic music festivals, art galleries and museums, theatres and independent art centers, such as: Tempo Reale Festival Florence, Radial System Berlin, Heroines of Sound Festival, Tsonami Festival Chile, FLUSSI Media Arts Festival Avellino, Iklectik London, PACT Zollverein Essen, Liverpool Biennial, Neue Musik St. Ruprecht Vienna, Roulette New York, Audiorama Stockholm, Italian Pavilion in the World/54th Venice Biennale.

Co-founder of "Corvo Records - vinyl & sound art production" where she released her solo LP Come ho imparato a volare, a composition based on the idea of methamorphosis where she includes her recordings of larvae transforming into flies and the field recordings of a women choir during the eastern procession rites in Southern Italy. In 2014 she released the 7" Roars Bangs Booms based on her performance work presented at the Museum FLUXUS+ in Potsdam about the onomatopoeic words from the Futurist Manifesto "The Art of Noises" by Luigi Russolo.

Alongside her solo work, she has collaborated with acclaimed composers, choreographers and artists including Zorka Wollny, Brandon LaBelle, Noha Ramadan, Ines Lechleitner, Marcus Bastos, Tomomi Adachi, Seiji Morimoto, and Marta Zapparoli.

Here she creates her sound installation Se Dio Vuole, a dedication to the beauty and destruction of the sea in Taranto. From this work she developed a book-document together with the music journalist Tobias Fischer, published in 2015.
