Ximena Alarcón is an artist who engages in listening to migratory spaces, connecting this to individual and collective memories. Her practice involves deep listening, sonic improvisation, and the creation of online environments to expand our sense of belonging and place. She is interested in creating telematic performances, derived from listening in interstitial spaces, such as dreams, underground transportation, and the ‘in-between’ space in the context of migration. She completed a PhD in Music, Technology and Innovation, from De Montfort University, and received a Leverhulme Early Career Fellowship 2007-2009, which led to the creation of the online environment ‘Sounding Underground’.
