Born in Oaxaca, southern Mexico, currently residing and working in Brussels. In her work, which we can consider quite versatile, she combines music with electroacoustic elements, sound art, video animation and sculpture.
The performance ‘Animacy or a Breath Manifest’ results from an investigation of pre-Columbian instruments made from ceramics. The research developed resulted in a series of wonderful flutes – sculptures that open up, without fear, to a totally new universe, in which breathing, organicity and energy are central elements.
In the relationship between investigation/construction, Pacheco builds a universe of ancestral music and ritual practices, as well as filled with mythological meanings.
