A voice is a person in sound.

The work of Brazilian/German sound artist and composer Laura Mello is the outcome of a practice of listening to the in-betweens, taking sound as the starting point to establish unheard connections. She explores the auditory dimensions of spoken language (Musical Pidgins) to deconstruct and reconstruct (de-)colonial perspectives, challenging established epistemologies (Intangible Sound of Contact). Laura’s projects emerge in multiple formats and evolve from interdisciplinary and often site-specific investigations (Living Radio, Radio Pamonha). In her conceptual 7 inch album Ringing Still Life, she explores the possibilities of vinyl as self-reflexive media.
