Marianthi Papalexandri-Alexandri

Marianthi Papalexandri-Alexandri is a Berlin-based composer and sound artist. She studied composition with Chaya Czernowin, Rand Steiger and Roger Redgate. She received her doctoral and masters degrees in composition from the University of California, San Diego, the Universität für Musik und Darstellende Kunst Wien and the University of London, Goldsmiths College.

Her work includes compositions and installations for sound objects that she creates herself and in collaboration with Swiss artist Pe Lang. Her work focuses on the reinvention of the musical instrument as a sound generator (object as instrument and instrument as object). It is a work that involves a continuous interaction between the visual to the musical, which demands absolute focus, clarity and economy of means. She is fascinated by the idea of using the same materials and objects under different conditions, and the ways in which the context can influence these materials. Marianthi’s works has been performed and exhibited in Europe, Asia, North and South America.
