Mara is a sound artist and composer creating performed pieces, and commissioned soundtracks for dance, film, and installations. Her practice explores the crossover between physical and digital environments through the use of field recording and digital manipulation. ​As well as working with sound, Mara’s practice extends to print making, poetry, curating, and coding, frequently mixing these mediums to create works with an emphasis on world building.Informed by interactions and perspectives within environments, her work questions the coexistence and understanding between those who inhabit them.

In 2019 Mara graduated from RMIT with a Bachelor of Design (Digital Media) and went on to attend LungA School (Seyðisfjörður, Iceland) in early 2020. She has been commissioned by SIGNAL, Avantwhatever Festival, Constellations Podcast, Open House, and Mpavillion. Mara is currently in residency at Church St Studios, Sydney and continues to work with Liquid Architecture producing their podcast series.
