About

Cecilia Sweet-Coll is an animator and musician from San Francisco, CA with backgrounds in film, dance, virtual reality, photography, and sculpture. Their animation work lives where music and movement meet, and tends toward the meditative, textural, conceptual, and abstract.

Cecilia played Latin jazz keys for seven years and now plays Cuban son on electric bass with the band Ximarrón. They also study son jarocho, a folk music tradition from their grandmother’s hometown of Veracruz, Mexico, and practice with Son del Valle, a collective in Pacoima, CA.

Cecilia also coordinates a team of abolitionist artists through JusticeLA and organizes toward housing as a human right with the Los Angeles Tenants Union. Their hope in all their work is to make more space for people to rest and breathe.
