Rebecca Horrox is a UK based visual artist, composer, and performer, her work encompassing projects across sculpting, music, dance and installation. She realises her compositions through visual performance, music and sound conjured directly and indirectly through voice, body or object kinesthesis. Her work binds characters and objets d’art in neoteric myth. Sculpted costume and ‘props’ are sonified, given voice, creating atmosphere, ubiquitous noise and music.

Trained as a costume designer and sound technician, La Horrox completed a Contemporary Digital Performance MA at Brunel in 2012. Her commissioned works include sculptures and soundtracks for short films, experiential art events, installation, dance and performance. She tours as a member of Wet Sounds, performing voice and electronic music with Joel Cahen, and since 2013, sings with Candy Shop, a touring project by sound artist Lina Lapelyte, in collaboration with seven voice artists and/or musicians. Her work has been presented by the Barbican Centre, Arnolfini, Spill London, Glasgow Film Festival, Fierce Birmingham and Soundlands.
