and photographer living in New York City. Her work has been shown in
festivals, galleries and museums internationally. She has worked with
composers/musicians such as Shelley Hirsch, Michelle Nagai, Flo Kaufmann,

Rosenfeld, Andrea Valle, Tetsu Inoue among others, in the creation of video
and sound installations, live performances and single channel videos.

Valerio Tricoli* is a Berlin-based composer, improviser, sound installation
artist, producer, sound engineer and curator bridging musique concrète and
conceptual forms of sound with a radical interest in how reality,
virtuality and memory relate to each other during the acoustic event. He
