Alessandra Eramo
Alessandra Eramo (born 1982 in Taranto, South Italy, lives and works in Berlin), also known under her artist name Ezramo, is an Italian-German sound artist, vocalist and composer who works primarily with voice and noise. She was trained in classical singing, piano and music theory since an early age, studied intermedial arts, experimental music and performance in Milan, Stuttgart and Venice. Through performance, video, drawings and installation, she investigates the tension between vocality and writing, the phonetics, the physicality and trance-like states in singing. The essence of her practice is to destabilize the normal expectations of voice, body and identity in order to trace a new sense of beauty in sound and language. Her artistic production focuses on the juxtaposition between pleasure and disturbance, fragility and power, memory and the present, public space and intimacy.
