< SHORT BIOGRAPHY >
Electric Indigo, DJ, composer, musician, has performed in 36 countries across Europe, Asia, and the Americas. Her name stands for the intelligent and discrete interpretation of Techno and electronic music. Her distinguished DJ-sets are characterized by a wide variety with a clarity of vision, and a depth that only comes from a deep understanding of the music and the art of the DJ. As a composer and musician, she emphasizes the spatial-temporal placement of subtly textured sounds.
Currently, Electric Indigo works on three new compositions: „Chiffres“ and, together with Burkhard Stangl, „impromptu électrique“ for e_may, premiere at Wien Modern in cooperation with e_may Festival in October 2012, „RRHONFEER-RRHEFNEOR“ for Moozak Festival in September 2012, and she produces two new EPS with her fellow Irradiation for TEMP∼Records.
Electric Indigo started her DJ career in Vienna 1989 and lived in Berlin for three years [1993-1996] to work at the legendary Hard Wax record store. In those years, she also began to produce her own music, first releases came out in 1993. In 1998, Electric Indigo created female:pressure an international database and network for female DJs, producers, and visual artists in the fields of electronic music that was awarded with an honorary mention at Prix Ars Electronica 2009. In 2002, she discovered her passion for experimental music and started to play live. Meanwhile, she gives concerts in the realms of avant-garde as well as club music. Institutions like the University of Music and Performing Arts Vienna, the University of Fine Arts Vienna, and the University of Applied Arts Vienna commonly invite Electric Indigo as a guest lecturer. She presents a monthly live DJ mix for rts.fm.
