She has investigated the human voice and created exclusive voice techniques, classified by tonality and register. Her interest in the avant-garde also covers video, minimal music, stage arts and artist-public contact.

With Llorenç Barber, she formed the group Taller de Música Mandana in 1979. She was the director of the phonotheque of Complutense University of Madrid from 1982 to 1989. In 2009, Fátima Miranda was awarded the "Demetrio Stratos" International Prize for experimental music.[1]
