Driven by an uncompromising approach towards music & sound, Rona Geffen is an all DIY musician and artist inspired by everyday city life. Geffen creates inimitable mixtures of Techno, Downtempo and Pop with an explicit sensual attitude, creates a lush rhythmic and musical world where everything is allowed and vibrating. Nowadays she is also exploring the emanating field of sound healing, using sound sources calibrated to planetary frequencies.
Geffen toured and collaborated with musicians, choreographers and artists of different disciplines among them Mad Professor, choreographer Yasmeen Godder, APE-RECORDS and many more. She is the creator of interactive, smokey and refined sound installations as part of the audio-visual duo BoomBoxing Crew which premiered music, art and mixed media events worldwide.

"Sound is the medicine of the future." - Edgar Cayce
During a three-month artist residency at the Spatial Sound Institute, Geffen executed a research into the alchemy of vibration and its effect on the listener. Her field of research concerns with the connection between emotional and physical reception of sound by the listener in relation to shape, movement and intention of sound, as well as the connection between sound, geometrical structures and mathematical constructs. Her research culminates in the immersive audio-visual experience 'The Sound is the Scenery’, based on geometrical structures also known as sacred geometry and mathematical sequences. In this work she uses tuning forks and chimes that resonate the frequencies of the planets in our solar system, human voice and percussions as her sound sources. 'The Sound is the Scenery’ explores a new form of audiovisual experience, using immersive technologies to create a meditative ritual and proposing new approaches to healing methods that apply sound and colour.
Geffen's research and shows at the Spatial Sound Institute incorporate the work of collaborators Alessandra Leone (visual and light installation) and Claire Aoi (mathematics and processing).
