Paulina Miu

I am a vocal artist, voice researcher and music therapist. I explore the relations, interweavings and different potentials of communication between the human voice and the environment. In my work I merge contemporary vocal elements with archaic songs and chants from Slavic music heritage. An important part of my practice is „white voice” – an archaic vocal technique based on an open throat singing. I am deeply interested in building communities and facilitating personal growth through conscious voice practice. I perceive human voice as a multidimensional tool of expression and communication as well as a medium to build a healthy relationship with ownself and other human and non-human beings.

I graduated from intermedia studies at University of the Arts in Poznań, Poland (MA) and music therapy at the Academy of Music in Łódź (BA). For many years, I has been closely associated with the Węgajty Theater. Currently, I live and work in Berlin.
