A key figure within musique concrète scenes, Ferreyra began by working at the Groupe de Recherches Musicales as one of Pierre Schaeffer’s research assistants in 1963.

Whilst there she developed her own research project — Objets Construits (Constructed Objects) — which offered her news ways of conceptualising and manipulating sound.

Canto+ is a career-spanning anthology, collecting work composed between 1971 and 2015.

It follows her split album with Natasha Barrett, Souvenirs Cachés / Innermost, in March.
