Sounding Underground London - Paris - Mexico Ximena Alarcón is a UK-based Colombian new media artist who focuses on listening to social context related sound, connecting it to individual and collective memories. She nourishes her practice with ethnography, looks for expression in voice and body, and uses networking technologies to interconnect different locations and perspectives of life. She completed her PhD in Music, Technology and Innovation at De Montfort University in 2007 and and was awarded with The Leverhulme Trust Early Career Fellowship 2007-2009 to develop "Sounding Underground" at De Montfort's Institute of Creative Technologies (IOCT). She is Research Fellow at the Creative Research into Sound Arts Practice-CRiSAP, University of the Arts London, where currently develops her project "Networked Migrations: listening to and performing the in-between space". She studies Deep Listening practice by performing with The Migratory Band. "One of my objectives is to find a balance between artistic and socially-based work within specific soundscapes, with people who are usually not musicians or artists, doing so by using creatively new media".
