Alena Koroleva is a multi-disciplinary Russian artist who makes sound collages with field recordings. She also works in photo and video art and curates programs for film festivals. She has a degree in documentary filmmaking and has made a few short films, but since 2018 she's reinvented her practice with sound art.
I'm fascinated by the potential of accidental or routine sounds made by people, machines and animals to create music, by the ability of sound to change its power and meaning when put in concert with others. I find inspiration in exploring the soundscapes of big cities, finding rhythms in chance encounters, using incompatible fragments to create a tune. As a deep listening believer I perceive soundscapes as ever changing endless concerts which all living beings contribute to.
