"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"

"The illegitimate child of the early Moondog"

ALESSANDRA ERAMO is a sound artist, vocalist and composer who works primarily with voice and noise .
She creates performance pieces, text-sound compositions, videos, drawings and site-specific installations, exploring latent acoustic territories of the human voice. Pushing the boundaries of sound poetry and vocal performance art, she investigates the tension between vocality and writing, the physicality and trance-like states in singing. The essence of her practice is to destabilize the normal expectations of voice, body and identity in order to trace a new sense of beauty in sound and language. Her artistic production focuses on the contrast between pleasure and disturbance, fragility and power, memory and the present, public space and intimacy.

She was trained in classical singing, piano and music theory since an early age, she completed her studies in intermedial arts, performance and experimental music in Milan, Stuttgart and Venice.

She has performed and exhibited internationally at many festivals, museums, galleries, theatres and independent art spaces, such as: Tsonami Festival Chile 2016, FLUSSI Media Arts Festival Avellino 2015, Iklectik London, PACT Zollverein Essen, Museum FLUXUS+ Potsdam, Liverpool Biennial 2012, Neue Musik St. Ruprecht Vienna, Roulette New York, Galerie Haus am Lützowplatz Berlin. By invitation of the Italian Culture Institute Stuttgart, she participated in the "Italian Pavilion in the World" of the 54th Venice Biennale with her audiovisual work Poetophonie.

Co-founder of "Corvo Records – vinyl & sound art production" where she released her solo LP Come ho imparato a volare, and the 7" Roars Bangs Booms in 2014, based on 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 Brandon LaBelle, Noha Ramadan, Ines Lechleitner, Marcus Bastos, Tomomi Adachi, Seiji Morimoto, and Marta Zapparoli. In 2015 she is vocal performer for the video work by Maria Iorio & Raphaël Cuomo, which is exhibited at the Fondazione Querini Stampalia in frame of the 56th Venice Biennale.

As recipient of grants from Berlin Senate, IfA and the Goethe Institut Napoli in 2013-2014 she curates and participates in the residency and sound art exhibition "Correnti Seduttive" in her hometown Taranto (with Peter Cusack, Georg Klein, Steffi Weismann and Wendelin Büchler), a place with the highest level of industrial pollution in Europe. Here she creates her sound installation Se Dio Vuole, from which she developed a book-document together with the music journalist Tobias Fischer, published in 2015.

Among others, she's been Artist in Residence at EMS Stockholm, EMPAC Troy (NY) - Rensselaer Polythechnic Institute with the electronic musician Doug Van Nort in 2012, and at Harvestworks Digital Media Arts Center New York, where she creates Lauter Spannung a multichannel audiovisual work for voice and field recordings.
Since 2015 she is a member of the group Errant Bodies - Sound Art Space in Berlin, where she lives and works.
