MOVEMENT AS SOUND/ SOUND AS MOVEMENT
This is her new approach towards playing piano. Taking the usual piano movement, this is used as "musical material" but not in terms of sound, but in terms of "visual and gestural material". There is lot of imaginary sound in the movement related to sound, and in this performance the audience in some point starts to listen sound through the pure movement when there is no sound.
Influenced from the practice of contact improvisation and contemporary dance, as well as from composers as Therry de Mey, Simon Steen-Andersen and Helmut Lachenmann, this is a continuous interest side of the performatic and compositional practice.
Premiered in December 2014 in Tallinn
Resonance Corporel du Piano Virtuel V. 1.0
Piece for pianist without piano composed for the Scene Laboratory / Research at La Maison de la Dance.
The piece is fully notated and it's made so that the pianist has to play in 3 imaginary keyboards placed in different levels, 3 in the front, 3 in the left and 3 on the right.
The movements are a deconstruction of piano gestures that out of context gives their body resonance, the choreography of playing piano.

Resonance Corporel du Piano Virtuel V. 2.0
This piece is an extension of the version 1.0 that includes video tracking of the movement through a Kinect camera.
All the sounds are recordings of my own piano extended techniques as a decontextualisation of them.
This piece was premiered in September 2016 in the SMC Computer Music Association S.T.R.E.A.M Festival in Kampnagel, Hamburg (Germany)
Piece composed for The City Composing in collaboration with the dancer Tania González. The piece is inspired on a text found in Kulturhuset that says:
Play very slowly, play with one finger, play with lemons, play with love, play the silence.
The piece is a dance between the dancer and the piano first and later later between the dancer and the pianist, who eventually becomes dancer as well.
Premiered in May 2015 in Stockholm

Composers & Choreographers Lab 2015
Phoenix Dance Company made in July 2015 the first Laboratory for 4 composers, 4 choreographers, 12 dancers and 4 musicians to work together during two weeks in Leeds (UK). The integration of those four parts was very strong and in the end the composers and musicians were dancing and the dancers were doing music. A great opportunity to cross disciplines and work hand by hand.
