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.

Her recent work significantly involves imitation and abstract storytelling through sound collages referring to a variety of genres and traditions of electronic music, sound poetry, folk music and languages of various peoples, birds and animals.
