About the artist

Albertina Sybila (Dagg3r) was born in Guatemala in one of the most bloody years of the civil war in her country. She started her studies at the National Conservatoire of Music, where she played viola, as what she calls, 'her first love'. At some point she dropped out of the conservatoire, tired of the strict way of classical teaching there. After that she started playing drums in an anarcho punk band. She emigrated to the Netherlands quite some years ago and this cultural shock produced a turmoil of emotions on her, creating a hybrid in between worlds. Working with a theremin and a drone box, she studies how to make sonic sigils to catalyze the pain, rage, frustration, anxiety, misanthropy and all the pandemonium of emotions that are engraved inside of her. After secluding herself from social contact she describes this (creative/destructive) process as Rituals of Suffering, as a necessity of grief liberators. She incarnates different personas in each project that she produced but all of them interwoven by the same spine and bones. Noise caster, drone maker, sound story teller, sigil summoner, chaote.
