Wellmer uses field recordings, live sound processing and electronically generated sound in her work, which shifts between tape music, improvisation, installation and performance. Feedback, electromagnetic disturbances and barely audible acoustic phenomena make out essential aspects of her work. In 2007 she received an honoray mention in digital musics from the Prix Ars Electronica in Linz.
Description of work with field recording
“I compose spaces and environments. The players of my pieces improvise freely in a defined framework. I work with computer processes, televisions, feedback, analog synthesizers, audio and video recordings, physical spaces, interferences, barely audible acoustic phenomena and field recordings. Apart from microphones I also contact mics, coils and antenna’s to explore my environment and to make inaudible signals audible to the human ear. Those of my works which are based on field recordings are studies about places and objects. They are accompanied by little stories. Like entries to a diary and similar to photographs these pieces shape my memory.”
