Martina Bertoni is a cellist and composer living in Berlin. 

She started playing cello as at a very young age. Her career developed around experimental and film music, for which her cello has been featured in numerous records, works and soundtracks.

The core of her work is based on deconstructing the relationship with her own instrument by combining acoustic sound, repetition, electronics and elements of improvisation. 

Her music channels emotional and physical depths, while exploring the liminal spaces between perception of space and sound, through recording and performing practices aimed to expand and challenge the listener’s experience.

After releasing two EPs in 2018 and 2019, she released her critically acclaimed full length album 'All the ghosts are gone' with the Icelandic label FALK in January 2020.

Her new album  'Music for Empty Flats' is out now on Karlrecords.
