b.1998
living/working between london and herefordshire

alba works within a web of digitally mediated sound, performance, image, text and video. they are Xtremely interested in the fecund connections between digital and fungal networks, and they like to forage for materials on the Internet. humour is also important to their practice as a mode of caring and probing; a conduit for pain and pleasure, fused. they appreciate ambiguity. at the moment, alba is playing and learning with processes of electronic ingestion/distortion/secretion in their audio work. much of their current work is also haunted by a leaky, pathetic and erotogenic trans-alien / sporting alter ego. Remixing and hybridisation are regular dinner guests in their mind. Textually, they would like to bang readers on the head and cradle them too. they mostly abide by the non-rule: mutation 4-ever.
