Fátima Miranda was born in Salamanca and lives in Madrid. After completing her M.A. in Art History, she specialized in contemporary art, publishing two books in this field. Since 1979 she is a founding member of the improvisation group Taller de Música Mundana and Flatus Vocis Trío, which is exclusively dedicated to phonetic poetry. She has recorded The paper opera with the former and Grosso Modo with the latter. Between 1982 and 1989, she has directed the Music Library of the Complutense University of Madrid. In 1985 she received the National Award of Culture and Communication bestowed by the Ministry of Culture for her book La Fonoteca (The Sound Library). Since 1983, she has been doing research on the voice and vocal music in traditional musics and this has propelled her to use the voice not only for singing and speaking but also as a wind and percussion instrument built into the body. All of the above constitutes the basis for her own integrated musical language.
