Fallon Mayanja is an artist and performer whose work deals with sound and media. Fallon Mayanja explores repetition and audio reactive devices using analogue synthesizers and programming software. The works also question the place of voice, the role of silence through the creation of archive samples all leading to the creation of new architectures through an exploration of amplified sounds, unfolding in electronic interstices.
