Alessandra Eramo (*1982 Taranto, Italy) is a Berlin-based sound artist, vocalist and composer who works primarily with voice and noise .
She creates performance pieces and text-sound compositions, but also 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.
She has performed and exhibited internationally at many festivals, museums, galleries, theatres and independent art spaces, such as: Audiorama Stockholm, 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, Italian Pavilion in the World – 54th Venice Biennale.
Alongside her solo work she has collaborated with acclaimed composers, choreographers and artists including Brandon LaBelle, Noha Ramadan, Tomomi Adachi, Seiji Morimoto, Marta Zapparoli, Ines Lechleitner, Maria Iorio & Raphaël Cuomo.
She’s been Artist in Residence a.o. at EMS Stockholm, EMPAC Troy (NY) – Rensselaer Polythechnic Institute (with Doug Van Nort), Harvestworks Digital Media Arts Center New York, Correnti Seduttive Taranto.
