bio

Hannah Sandoz is a performer-composer, visual artist, and audio engineer based out of Chicago, IL. They are a 2021 graduate of the Oberlin Conservatory of Music with a B.M. in TIMARA (Technology in Music and Related Arts).

Sandoz's work explores shared experiences, human tenderness, and emotional memory. Their approach to songwriting is candid and often through-composed, implementing morose lyrics and lush ambient soundscapes. Their primary instruments are guitar, voice, and laptop. Storytelling comes naturally to them; the intimacy of opening up to people, in personal and artistic contexts, challenges and invigorates their writing process. Their use of electronic processing and studio production helps them to articulate their experiences with more specificity. 

With each piece they create, they document an event in their life or a feeling they've had. Some documents are tender and intimate; others, cold and distant. The intangible qualities of their experiences inform their approach to composition and production.
