Affectionately known as 'Swiss Army Marf' amongst colleagues 'cause she’ll have a go at most of the things. Supporting Artist to many, she's currently exploring what her independent work might look like as an audiovisual songwriter combining music, sound & voice with live AV - a reimagining of the concept album for solo performance; experimenting with the value(?) of trying to do-it-all-yourself. MARF’s current work holds certain concern with the reuse & repurposing of media in a data-dumping society, our obsessions with nostalgia aesthetics and the brief, burning light of hindsight.'
