Audrey Chen

Audrey Chen began her relationship with sound through the cello and voice over 30 years ago and for the past 15 years, her predominant focus has been her solo work, joining together the extended and inherent vocabularies of the voice, cello and analog electronics (with all sounds created without electronic effect or enhancement other than amplification). More recently, she has begun to shift back towards the exploration of the voice as a primary instrument, delving even more deeply into her own version of narrative and non-linear storytelling. American born and currently based in Berlin, Chen has performed across Europe, North/South Americas and Asia. Recent projects, aside from performing solo, include her long running voices duo with Phil Minton, duos Hiss & Viscera with modular synth player Richard Scott, Beam Splitter with Norwegian trombonist Henrik Munkeby Nørstebø, and the “romantic noise duo” Afterburner with Doron Sadja (electronics/light projection).
