Helen Davey: home


Welcome here.

I’m an Australian musician, based in Switzerland; I work as an improviser, composer and song-writer in cross arts projects, collaborating with theatre, film, movement, text and visual artists.

I love using many sound sources (voice, prepared/piano, zither, accordion, found objects, harp, guitar and percussion) to create music that responds directly to a piece of art (eg stories, images). As a soloist, I perform interactive sound-paintings, taking material from audiences then spontaneously translating it into music.
You can hear some examples of recorded sound-paintings here

For bookings and enquiries, I'd love to hear from you. Just email me here: helen (at)
