Marie-Cécile Reber

Musician and Composer with electronic musical instruments.

Lives in Lucerne.

She is well known for her specific site soundinstallations using particular means to produce unusual sound. For instance at Glacier Garden Lucerne where the sound permeated deep down into the holes of the ancient rock. Or the installation on the mountainside of Heiligkreuz in which the electricity of solar panels produced the sound. The installation at Lincoln Park Conservatory in Chicago, in which special sensors transformed the growth of flowers into sound.

Reber is searching for sound in nature and, having dealt with microscopic noise structures for years, she has found ways to transform them into pictorial soundscapes and use them as elements for her compositions and her live performances.

At the heart of Rebers working methods lies the subtle border between concrete noise and musical sounds.

She is searching for sound in nature and, having dealt with microscopic noise structures for years, she has found ways to transform them into pictorial soundscapes and audible sounds.

There are ant sounds, insect sounds…

By engaging with natural and analogue sounds she has acquired a unique tonal palette

that has become her instrument for concerts, installations and composing.
