is a Mexican musician, singer and performer. Her work aims for the interdisciplinarity in performance using the human voice in relationship with new technologies to create compositions and de-compositions of the personality on stage. She pursues an equitable dialogue between two instruments: the body (as sound producer) and the machine.
With St’art moveS music, she releases alternative, experimental music and soundscapes playing live with visual artists and collaborators. Sarmen has performed and taught in Mexico (VASTA Conference 2009), Belfast (Crescent Arts Centre); France (Myth and theatre Festival), Spain (Ecce Hommo’ music composition), Scotland (Café Amour’s music Edinburg Fringe), among others. Last summer she performed Luminosity by Marina Abramovic & Mirror Check by Joan Jonas at the Manchester International Festival; she performed ID1 for the long distance International Art Space Station project in Mexico City and on December 2nd and 3rd she played at the AXA in Action Festival 2011 in Prague. In 2012 Sarmen performed IDentities for ‘Fragmented artist’ in London.
Currently, Sarmen is a PhD Research student at University College of Falmouth, UK.
