Her academic training helped her to investigate within the resources of voice and of the scenic art. Fátima Miranda possesses a unique vocal technique.

With a highly ecclectic formation that equally includes opera and the Indian Dhrupad, Fátima Miranda is, today, "the voice" of new Spanish music. A voice never heard before that sounds to many other things; a kind of compositions with a multicultural scent; and a performing miracle (to Fátima Miranda, the oral and facial movements, the gestures, the light,...etc, is music ready to be composed with an obsessive meticulousity).
Fátima Miranda was born in Salamanca and lives in Madrid. After finishing her degree in Arts, she specialized in Contemporary Art and published two books about architecture and urbanism. Her interest in the avant-garde resulted in her peculiar vision of the scenic art, the video and the minimalist music, but, above all, of the relationship between art and life and between the artist and his audience.
After her meeting with the musician Llorenç Barber -a crucial moment in her life- both created the group Taller de Música Mundana. From 1982 to 1985 she was the director of the phonoteque in the Universidad Complutense (Madrid), combining this activity with her studies of percussion, alto sax and musical education of the ear. She soon discovered the unexpected and precious potential of her voice and decided to explore it deeply up to its largest consequences.
From 1983, she has been developing several investigations about the voice and vocal music within traditional music and this has led her to use her voice, not only singing and talking but also turning her body into an instrument of wind and of percussion. All this constitutes the basis of her own integrated musical language.
Throughout the systematic experimentation, and in solitary, she has developed a series of personal, unique vocal techniques that she has later catalogued for her own use- a necessary step, since most of those techniques were created by her and have no precedents. Giving them a name and arranging them depending on their timbre and register, she has been able to create a codified unity of resources available for her own work and also for her collaborations with other artists.
