She is interested in questions of when music starts, where does it emerge, what happens at the border of mere noise. In this context, the relationship between humankind and nature, the poetic and aesthetic dimension of natural science, as well as social and political structures in various contexts are important. A link between these themes are methods of interpretation and translation – understood both as artistic means and as the construction and perception of everyday life. Sound is used here as a means of communication, music as a language serving as both, outlet and metaphor.
