Victoria Pham

The musical and artistic practice of Victoria Pham (b. 1996) is driven by explorations into the sonic connections across bio-design, decolonisation, familial storytelling and cross-cultural identities. Her installations often combine organic materials, experiments with bio-textiles such as mycelial materials, with filmmaking and projection.

The works of Victoria Pham are housed within her sound-worlds and scapes, where sound and acts of listening play a central role in how she works, and seeks for audiences to experience her work. These intimate to large-scaled works often manifest as fantasy environments where audiences are invited to sit amongst or within, offering spaces of reflection, meditation and play.

As an evolutionary biologist and archaeologist, her specialisation is in bioacoustics, the evolution of sound-signalling and acoustic mapping technologies. The hallmark of her interdisciplinary practice is her belief that a partnership with nature is fundamental, and that nature is a collaborator in her design, research and sound-based work. Victoria continues to pursue her work in bio-design through research into bioacoustics and mycology, which inform the cross-form approaches that structure her creative process. This is emblematic in 2023 when she founded bio-design and acoustic ecology studio, Earthly Futures.

Aside from her installation artistic practice, she continues to work as a sound practitioner, often collaborating with fellow creatives as a music producer, sound engineer, performer, and sound designer.
