Eleonora Oreggia (xname) is an interdisciplinary artist born in Milan and based in London. She makes interactive installations and live performances.
Made of self built electronics, lines of code, and other inert matter (noise, dust), her alchemic constructions often contain a live element, something that has to happen, yet unpredictable. Her live compositions transform light and other electromagnetic frequencies in sound waves through self built synthetisers and complex semi chaotic machines. The result is an hypnotic spectacle dominated by industrial and noise-techno frequencies.

She is currently associated with the Augmented Instruments Laboratory at Queen Mary University where she is developing electronic musical instruments within the Antennas & Electromagnetics Group. She is also the founder of Nebularosa, a record label promoting experimental electronic music that challenges the established modes of music production.
On June 12 and 17 she will be performing at Fylkingen!
