Biografie

Milou Mignon is vocal artist en soundhealing therapeut voor kinderen en volwassenen. In haar performances, sessies en workshops laat ze je vliegen op de vleugels van je authentieke (verbeeldings)kracht. Ze gidst je door middel van muziek, stem, klank en mythische verhalen naar een plek waar heling, verwondering en diepe connectie met jezelf en je omgeving plaatsvinden. 

Om muziek als medicijn te onderzoeken studeerde ze aan Harmonic Sounds in Alicante en aan het conservatorium van Amsterdam en Antwerpen. Verder laat ze zich inspireren door het werk van schrijfster Clarissa Pinkola Estes, gaat ze in gesprek en in duet met muzikanten vanuit alle windrichtingen en creëert ze community art projecten op bijzondere locaties.


A short introduction

My name is Milou Mignon, I am a vocal artist and soundhealer. Since my early childhood I have discovered the world through my zoomrecorder, making audio stories and songs, performances and poems. This is what I’ve been doing full time into my twenties, performing in forests, circustents, theatre festivals, pop venues, on the street, in basements and jazz clubs, meeting new friends from all kinds of backgrounds to go into dialogue with. These collaborations and discoveries through the magic of art – fill me up with joy.

I sing in every language that I can keep my hands on, at this moment: English, French, Dutch, a little bit of Spanish and gibberish. Also my music could be described as eclectic, for I do not hold myself back by borders of specific genres and boxes, still the core is always a tiny story about a poundering human or animal.

In my art I create journeys by interwaving melody, word and fieldrecording (underwater or in the city), introducing real characters and stories of people who carry a medicine within them (like colourful 83-year old Henny or poet Kokob from Eritrea). My works are called (from youngest to oldest) album/audiotour Onder de Sterren, podcast- & concertseries 3×3=9, podcast Poppenhuis, album Stadskoraal, short film Aquarium, audio play Ons bed is de Savanne.
