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.

On The Self Road, you share the experiences of your inner voyage. Today, we are en route to meet Leo Coleing, the Laughing Buddha, the joyous father, the mediator for Alcoholic Anonymous who was once homeless, an alcohol and drug addict, MC on the hip hop music scene in Bristol and a bit of a gangster. Listen to his wake up call… and remember... "It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye." - Antoine de Saint-Exupery.
