Mexican-born sound and visual artist. She has a degree in music and literature from the Universidad de Guadalajara. Ph.D. in Art, Universidad Autònoma de Barcelona, Spain (2007), where she focused on the role of sound in art since its inception in the 19th century through its evolution as an independent art practice by the second half of the 20th century. Within these studies, Sánchez places emphasis on soundart and examines in her thesis the radio plays of Samuel Beckett linking them to the radiophonic art that emerged in the mid-20th century.
