Artists Sabina Meyer

Born in Zurich, moved to Italy in 1988. Studied Anthropology and Musicology at the Bologna D.A.M.S-University (graduating with full mark and honors). Rather than choosing the orthodox conservatory studies, she preferred a more personal path, following the footsteps of various masters of the experimental, improvised and contemporary music as well as research theatre. Studies singing with Gabriella Bartolomei and Michiko Hirayama. Since more than ten years she is actively involved in the improvised and contemporary music scene. As composer and improviser, she also developed a quest in the field of sound poetry with particular attention to the specific issues of the contemporary female poetry.
