Sarah Procissi (1991, Bastia) is a composer and musician living in Nice. Her musical practice is both oriented towards contemporary electroacoustic music and traditional Mediterranean music.  

  Her composition work is influenced by concrete music, electronic music and the use of soundscapes ( field recordings ) that she achieves through sound recordings. She likes to create sound landscapes by recording objects, machines, atmospheres of cities, places up close ... She is interested in the sound characteristics of matter (movements, morphologies, timbres) captured by her microphones that she then integrates in a raw or sculpted way via different sound treatments.  

She is also closely interested in multiphonic creation and sound spatialization, a subject on which she wrote her final thesis.
Since 2018, she has also composed instrumental pieces: Terra Nova (for voice, electric guitar, synthesizer, percussions), Sinla'pa (for two percussionists).

Her compositions have been shown in Paris, Weimar, Buenos Aires, Tunis, Monastir, Marseille, Nice, Monaco ...
