Angelika Lepper aka DJ ACID MARIA has pursued danceable-experimental electronic sounds since the 1990s, playing international clubs, festivals and cultural events. Beyond her long-term residency at Munich’s Ultraschall club, she has also graced venues in Mexico City, Chicago, Tokyo, Nairobi, Istanbul, Warsaw, Vienna, Amsterdam, Offenbach, Zurich (and many more) with her DJing skills. For her own music, she sounds out the links, intersections and areas of friction between different styles and eras; always with an open eye and ear for subcultures and their aesthetic concepts as well as intriguing overlaps with other media arts, their codes and modes of expression. Author Thomas Meinecke mentions her in his novel »Musik«. She is a founding member of the female pressure platform, established in the late 1990s to improve the networking and visibility of women in electronic art and music. After finishing her diploma in Media Art and Philosophy and Aesthetics in Karlsruhe, she moved to Berlin (2004-2014) where she worked as a DJ, artist and lecturer – the latter at a range of colleges and universities (incl. the Film University Potsdam Babelsberg Konrad Wolf, the Bauhaus-Universität Weimar and UCC Beijing). Angelika also researches and writes about appropriations in Fine Arts – currently with a focus on hacking, modding, circuit bending and artistic strategy. Together with her daughter, she lives beside lake Ammersee, near Munich.
