Bio

Born in Baltimore, MD, USA, Marlo De Lara is a sound performance artist currently pursuing a PhD in Cultural Studies at the University of Leeds. Under the Marlo Eggplant alias, De Lara produces textural compositions which develop from microscopic tone landscapes into dense and expansive states of noise and drone. Her works aim to blur the definitions of (un)intentional sound and music. The many noises and tones of De Lara’s live performances are sourced from autoharps, contact mics, vocals and loops, amongst other tools. Her pieces have minimalist origin stories that can be breached through a knowing and often slow-burning approach to improvisation. As curator and organizer of the Ladyz in Noyz (LIN) international compilation series and collective, an ongoing project from 2008 to the present, she continues to promote emerging artists and musicians who are women.
