Aurélie Lierman was born in Rwanda and grew up in Belgium from the age of two. She’s an independent radio producer, vocalist and composer. Lately Aurélie Lierman is trying new directions by fusing radio art, vocal art and composition. Her main focus is her personal field recordings: a large collection of unique sounds and soundscapes from rural and urban contemporary East‐Africa. Sound‐bit by sound‐bit she’s transforming and sculpting them into something she would call “Afrique Concrète”.
In May 2014 Aurélie Lierman won the First Prize at Monophonic 2014 (Brussels) for her most recent radio composition ‘Anosmia’. In 2013 Aurélie Lierman won both the PIARS Competition (Rome) and GRAND PRIX NOVA (Bucharest) (for her radio compositions ‘iota mikro’ and KARIAKOO). Aurélie Lierman had two album releases in collaboration with the British cult-group Nurse With Wound ( [SIC] 2013, “Santoor Lena Bicycle” 2014). Currently she is working on album releases with a.o. Varkenshond (BE/NL) due in autumn 2014.
