American composer-producer Lyra Pramuk
<https://rwm.macba.cat/en/sonia/lyra-pramuk/capsula> embodies the search
for a sensual mysticism through improvisation, by means of delicate
electronic manipulations that merge Western classical vocal training,
performance practice, pop sensibilities, and an interest in electronic
music and club culture. The result is a fluid and ethereal sound that has
often been described as futurist folk.

The point of departure for Lyra’s practice is listening, which she sees as
a fundamental tool for both self-realisation and collective action.
Role-playing games, which were a big part of her life as a teenager, were a
decisive influence on her idea of queerness and transness, and are
reflected in her work and explorations in the form of multiple layers of
identity that come together in a single voice.

In this podcast, Lyra Pramuk talks about key moments in her childhood and
adolescence, which was marked by a rigorous religious and musical
education, and about her subsequent journey to deconstruct her assigned
identity, taking refuge in her love of science fiction and role-playing
games as basic strategies for reinventing herself. We also chat about
performativity, resisting the text, non-verbal music, live vs studio work,
the recording logic of the music industry, the importance of queer
community building, and clubbing in Berlin.
