Martina Bertoni is an experimental cellist and composer.
Her music channels emotional and physical depths, while exploring the liminal spaces between perception of space
and sound, through recording and performing practices
aimed to expand and challenge the listener’s experience.
The core of her work is based on deconstructing the
relationship with her own instrument by combining
acoustic sound, electronics, generative work and modern composition.
A classically trained cellist, Martina developed her research
and practices around experimental and film music, for which
her cello and her original works are featured in numerous records, works and soundtracks for films, series and documentaries.
After self-releasing two EPs in 2018 and 2019, Martina
released her first full length album All the ghosts are Gone
with the Icelandic label FALK in 2020, followed by the critically
acclaimed Music for Empty Flats, released in 2021 by Karlrecords and listed by A Closer Listen among the 10 best Ambient Drone Albums of 2021. At the beginning of 2023 she released her new album Hypnagogia with Karlrecords, once again to much critical praise.
