Thank you for visiting my website! For you who don’t know me, I am an Amsterdam-born, London-based electronic music producer, songwriter, singer, performer and early adopter of the mi.mu gloves (wireless data gloves to perform electronic music with gesture).
Inspired by the people around me, nature, Ancient Greek poetry, the music of Bjö rk, James Blake, Beethoven, Nina Simone, Erykah Badu, Joni Mitchell, Miriam Makeba and soooo many others, I write songs that are deeply personal but underpinned by a sometimes uncomfortable bed of wobbly basses and quirky sounding beats.
During performances at e.g. SXSW, TED, Sonar+D, Ableton Loop, Amsterdam Dance Event, Green Man and Nesta Futurefest I have been using the mi.mu gloves to physically control the most detailed of electronic sounds while maintaining direct interaction with the audience.
My show is very visual too and I apply reactive visuals and carefully designed choreography to create an almost hyper-reality, a physical space where normally invisible sound effects are represented visually.
Early 2017, with the support of the Arts Council England and through residencies at Somerset House and Westminster University, I produced my new live show ‘Calibration’ that I am currently touring through the UK and Europe.I am also working on my first VR experience called 'Ukiyo Cave' which revolves around true and focussed listening to music. During this piece I will invite you to leave everything from your daily and internet-driven life behind an become part of my musical imagination.... More info on this project coming very soon...
I am supported by PRS Foundation's Women Make Music
by Keychange - an international campaign which is run by PRS Foundation to accelerate change and create a better, more inclusive music industry for present and future generations and supported by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union
