RECTRIX is the solo sound performance project of interdisciplinary artist Pippi Zornoza. Zornoza works with themes of horror and violence using samples, triggers, voice, constructed instruments and built environments that transform a grieving body into weaponized sound. She is a co-founder of the Dirt Palace feminist art collective in Providence Rhode Island. Formed in 2000, the Dirt Palace has since embodied the oxymoron of “Underground Institution”. Zornoza has performed in the musical projects VVLTVRE, Bonedust, Worms in Women and Cattle, Master of Pussy, Sawzall, and Wold. The live RECTRIX album, The Sound of It Hammering Against the Skirts will be released on Lacryphagy in 2018.
