For A/TEM (the German word Atem means Breath) I sing abstract sounds with my voice such as an interrupted breath, and I create abstract, automatic drawings. Although these can be read as graphic notation, the drawings are much more than a visual representation of the voice: Detached from visual-acoustic hierarchies, voice and gestural drawing are inseparably connected in a hand-mouth coding with its endless possibilities of interpretation and translation.

The voice is ephemeral. How can I make the presence of my voice visible? A crucial aspect of my ongoing artistic research is the tension between orality and writing. The deep exploration of the voice as a medium and instrument brings me to a physical acoustic experience in singing. The voice can be expanded into something else, it can be transformed or symbolized, it can become a drawing and a graphic score, and it can be recorded for the eternity. I am interested to find connections between opposites, creating a dialogue between the sound of the inside and the outside, like the breath.
