MV Carbon is a multi-disciplinary artist encompassing live performance, sound, film, sculpture, painting, and multimedia installation. Her work focuses on sonic feedback, sound spatialization, sound morphology, and the transformative and deconstructive interrelationship between sound, image, space, and place. Carbon interprets sonic space as a living organism which fluctuates physically, and perceptively. Her work touches on themes such as regeneration, interchangeability, and transmogrification of matter and mind, while exploring the capacity of sound through music, performance, and immersive space. Carbon forms soundtracks with amplified vessels, handmade electronics, voice, cello, magnetic tape, oscillators, keyboards, and electronic synthesis.
