Scenes from Spaces and Traces
A comprovised piece, with use of studio recordings coupled with recordings gathered in soundwalks.
“Quest(ion)s“ with voice artist Sumru Ağıryürüyen
A collaboration with two swallow birds. On a visit to Edincik/Turkey was woken up by two swallow birds’ dawn songs around 4:00 AM. I got up and without scaring them off, was able to record their chatter. I explore a practice where I am situated as an actor within a network of entangled relations with the two swallows, and my instrument (piano, objects, electroacoustics).
How do I move past the learnt ape-brain vs. bird-brain dichotomies? Starting with such questions, I kept adding questions, perspectives, versions, and stories in sounding together with them.
Balloons For Thought
Investigation of various tactile and movement-based relations between object-body and human-body. Exploring various possibilities for sound, movement and narrative. The narratives are explored through gestural and textural thinking as well as some program and abstract elements.

Her current interests include response-able sonic practices with humans, more-than-humans, and materials; practices with musical instruments as material agents (human-instrument collaborations) and; sympoietic practices in multivalent, immanent spaces within electroacoustic composition and performance.

The Bird Clock Opera featuring the Days Of The Week
The texts for this piece were originally written as part of a revision of the Homeric Hymn to Demeter; a revision which broadens the picture of Black women who are descendant of colonial enslavement. A dialogue based on the contrast of Artemis’ power and agency over her body compared to women who have been unsafe for generations.
Women who carry these wounds as warnings and a call out for accountability. The underlying track called ‚Xercathalon’s Debut: A Bird Clock Opera, is a piece based on the sounds of childhood as remembered and incorporated into this collaborative soundscape.
