Through a diversity of projects such as the live radio play In Labour (2014), the performative installation The Subjective Frequency Transducer (2015), field recording adaptations duo Native Instrument (2015) and alter ego Stine II, she explores and challenges the physical features of the voice, the acoustics of her external/internal surroundings and new performance strategies.
