sound art & music
Sound artist and musician Sonja Roth explores natural and artificial environments: water is a reoccuring subject. She creates subtle melodies with her voice, guitar, electronic elements and clarinet. Deasil and Withershins is her new live band with Sean Byrne - as the name says: clockwise and counterclockwise - follow the direction of the sun and against the direction of the sun -
The stories she tells refer to real and unreal experiences inspired by the strange world we live in. Some of her work is singer-songwriter based and she draws from her background in community development and print-making. Her interest in technology is more and more present in her sound work and she works with arduino and live editing softwars and with the project jellyfish has build a new instrument.
She moves towards a more abstract sound art where she uses natural and artificial sounds and field recordings and combines them intuitively, creating a space: sometimes light and colourful, sometimes with dust and layers.
Currently she works on some new projects in her artist in residency OBRAS, Portugal.
