Audrey Lauro, Belgium.

"First playing in jazz and then contemporary music following musical composition studies and gaining a Slavic Philology Master, Audrey Lauro has spent the last decade developping her music on the experimental Belgian music scene. As an alto sax player focusing mostly on free improvised music she works deeply in the language of the instrument. From the phrase to sound event through all kinds of atoms and particles.In 2012 she curates the festival Wolves Stories dedicated to the female improv scene. She invites to join the "Wolves" Maggie Nichols (UK), Mia Zabelka (AU), and 8 other female musicians to create a portrait of women through music, texts, films and experiments. In 2013 she invites Stine Janvin Motland (NO) to perform with the wolves collective.


Since 2013 she regularly worked with the innovative production platform/ensemble for multidisciplinary music projects ChampdAction ( in several productions of the collective :

- 2013 " Hold Your Horses" grand Opéra de trash in 27 acts and entr'actes

- 2014 P-Trains /Astrin Phosphora / (20 Nov 2014 at DeSingel, "Ann Eysermans et ChampdAction")

- 2015 "HRZSCHMRZ"" In the opera HRZSCHMRZ Serge Verstockt and ChampdAction put the spotlight on 'love'. They ponder the ever advancing digital world that engulfs us in our daily reality."

in 2016 A.L worked currently with Q02 ( workspace for experimental music and sound art based in Brussels), B R O N K S (Theater for a young audience /Brussels) and The National Theater " La Monnaie" for the creation " It's Frankestein Stupid", presented in may 2016 during the European Opera Days .
