Fernanda Aoki Navarro is a musician born in Sao Paulo, Brazil, based in Boston. She is a composer of acoustic and electroacoustic music, creates intermedia works, performance art, and installations. She is interested in sound, the idiosyncratic relationship between the corporeality of the performers and the physicality of their instruments, the exploration between music and language, and the transformational power that experimental music can exert on issues related to feminism and social otherness.
She earned a BA in Music Composition from Universidade de São Paulo, a Masters degree from UC Santa Cruz and a PhD from UC San Diego. She's currently a fellow at the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study at Harvard University.
Fernanda doesn't know how to dance samba, procrastinates to write program notes, doesn't know how to react when someone makes a compliment or a critique, goes to the cinema every week, drinks coffee everyday.
