Sarmen is a Mexican musician, voice performer, and intermedia artist. She holds a Master’s degree in Sonic Arts from Queen’s University Belfast and has been awarded the SNCA (National System of Creators, Mexico) prize. She is the director of Alquimia Vocal, a platform dedicated to ongoing professional training in the use of the voice for the stage.
As a creator, Almond is very interested in free improvisation, experimental music and composition. She uses the voice and its relationship with electronic media to create compositions and decompositions of the personality on stage. She’s in constant quest of the infinite vocal possibilities of the human body as an instrument, as well as the reflection of these sounds in physical and imaginary spaces. Almond uses free improvisation, extended vocal techniques, programming and body work. She has performed in Mexico, Canada, Singapore, Malaysia, and several European countries.
Her principal vocal training has been directed by Hebe Rosell Masel, Enrique Pardo, Linda Wise, Liza Mayer, Jonathan Hart and Kaya Anderson.
Sarmen speaks English, Spanish, and some French.
