Luigi Nono, 1972

Rafaele Andrade [BR, 1994] is a music pioneer in the field of modern/experimental music. With a background in Conducting, Composition, Production, Cello, live coding and Sonology, she develops artworks merging these crossovers into innovative practices with the technology, social inclusion, sustainability & fair music distribution. Rafaele has a passion for social initiatives, producing during her young career an orchestra of Brazilian music at 17 years old and at 22, curating a UNESCO project to promote Latin American women composers (Rádio Delas). She is a member of NLCL(Netherlands), iii (Netherlands) and CIM (Brazil) and the creator of Knurl, a reconfiguration of a classic/baroque cello format into a reprogrammable system, a hybrid acoustic and solar-powered.

She is currently living in the Hague, The Netherlands

You can wait to engage with my projects? You're more than wellcome to join in a collab, or drop anytime at the musiclab studio (iii).

If we want to change collectively, we have to talk about our individual attitudes.​

I'm aware of the marginalization of culture, races and gender in the conventional world. My motivation is to produce qualified content to stimulate the wealth of each living being. I produce artistic projects which engage sustainability, social inclusion in their whole art form's concept, formal technical approaches, aesthetic and production. I respect the diversity of culture, gender, races and aesthetics not just on my works, but mostly in my life as a neighbor, partner, friend or colleague.
