about

anina rubin is a media artist and musician. her focus lies in storytelling through spatial sound, augmented reality musical experiences, experimental vocals, and visual abstraction. she mostly takes her inspirations from the study of nature, psychology and spiritual beliefs. her spatial audio ambisonic sound collages and compositions are a melting mix of film score, sound poetry, musique concrète, indie jazz, and storytelling. the musical projects are created as fixed media or in symbiosis with experimental short films and/or live performances.
