Electric Indigo, DJ, composer, musician, has performed in 38 countries across Europe, Asia, and the Americas. Her name stands for the intelligent and distinguished interpretation of techno and electronic music. Her DJ-sets are characterized by a wide variety with a clarity of vision and a depth that comes from a deep understanding of the music and the art of DJing. As a composer and musician, she creates music for concert spaces, clubs, sound installations and occasionally for stage plays and short films. In her compositions and live performances, she emphasizes the spatial-temporal placement of subtly elaborated sounds and structures, often generated from speech recordings. Electric Indigo shuttles between Vienna and Berlin.
Out on June 13th : Electric Indigo - Seven EP - HET Records
The A 1 track „Sept“ is a journey through soundscapes and a club track at once. There are unbelieveably many details to discover.
„Siete“ on A 2 is on the edge of an Ambient and Techno. A tremendous kickdrum becomes the centre of the rich atmosphere.
On B 1 Tensal hands over his interpretation of „Sept“. This track is up for the peak time on the big floor.
On B 2 Hagen Richter, who is running the label, also remixed „Sept“. This track combines melodies with a heavy snare drum.

109.47 degrees by Electric Indigo [audio]
The title 109.47 degrees refers to the ideal tetrahedal angle in foams as described in Plateau’s laws. In this work, Electric Indigo creates complex sonic structures composed of very small acoustic entities. These structures live on friction, cohesion and constant movement. Sloterdijk’s “Spheres” trilogy was an important inspiration for the composition, especially the “foam” metaphor to describe and comprehend a multifocal society of individuals who live in an highly interdependent, globalized world.
Surround / ultra-wide hyper-stereo with 6 channels
Original duration: 30 min

BARRY DUFFMAN A/V by Electric Indigo [audio] and TE-R (Louise Linsenbolz & Thomas Wagensommerer) [video]
“Barry Duffman” is an examination of the influence that the cultural industry has on high art, an exaggeration of Clement Greenberg’s proposition that kitsch and avant-garde infiltrate each other. For all practical purposes, it is a profoundly alienated, electro-acoustic transformation of the Billboard's “Hot 100” number one chart hits in 2015 (January to November).
Electric Indigo puts this basic raw material under the microscope using granular re-synthesis and micro-sampling of the originals. She zooms into their constitutive elements and layers, edits, alienates shortest moments, completely transforms and prolongs them. On a higher level, the piece mirrors characteristics of pop music. It echoes obvious sounds and musical contrasts, which seem to be quintessential for chart hits (e. g. bombastic, cinematic intros, percussive emphasis on each second and fourth beat, predictable alternation of chorus and verse, certain harmonies) it structurally reflects the typical arrangements of the underlying songs.
