Daphne Xanthopoulou (she, they) is a sound designer, experimental electronic musician, new media artist and curator currently based in Linz, Austria. Working through performance, podcast and installation, she employs the means of sonic fiction, to design and explore rituals of collective composition, speculative listening and communal healing.
In her new media work, she designs participatory experiences which allow us to listen to more than human agencies and to expose the material infrastructures and ecosocial interdependencies of our networked world.
Her music has been published in labels such as Exiles tssstapes(IT), acclaimed by the Quietus Spool’s Out Cassette Review and A Closer Listen and broadcasted by the Late Junction show on BBC3. Her latest album “The Plumb Sutra”(Bezirk Tapes, UK), was featured in Bandcamp Daily’s Best Experimental Music column in November 2021.
She’s the co-founder of the sonic arts curatorial platform and events series Cachichi and the experimental music publishing imprint Wirtshaus Secrets and the host of Sonic Utopias a sonic fiction and world-building podcast that airs monthly at Movement Radio, Athens, Greece.
