Electric Indigo, DJ, composer and musician from Vienna, has performed in 39 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 only comes from a profound understanding of music and the art of the DJ. As a composer and musician, she creates works for concert spaces and clubs, as well as occasionally for stage plays, films or sound installations. In her compositions and live performances, she emphasizes the spatial-temporal placement of subtly textured sounds and structures, often generated from speech recordings. In March 2018 she released her debut solo album “5 1 1 5 9 3 ” on imbalance computer music.
Electric Indigo started her DJ career in Vienna in 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 make music herself, first releases came out in 1993. 10 years later, she started her own record label indigo:inc recordings which is sound asleep nowadays... In 1998, Electric Indigo founded female:pressure, an international database and network for female, non-binary and trans artists in the field of electronic music that was awarded with an Honorary Mention at Prix Ars Electronica 2009. She lectures at institutions like the University of Music and Performing Arts Vienna, the University of Fine Arts Vienna, the University of Applied Arts Vienna, at the Darmstadt Summer Course for New Music and for Ableton.
Important works in recent years include the multichannel compositions “Tolkowsky’s Refraction” [premiere at Heroines of Sound Festival Berlin, 2017], “Barry Duffman” with video by TE-R [premiere at Wien Modern, 2015], “MORPHEME” with video by Thomas Wagensommerer [a/v surround premiere at CTM Festival Berlin, 2015] and “109.47 degrees” [premiere at Dunkle Zeiten Festival Vienna, 2014].
Currently, Electric Indigo works on a commissioned tape composition for “Synthetic Skin” that will premiere at the Darmstadt Summer Course end of July 2018, on “Hierarchy Glitch”, a composition for ensemble and animation film, and on new pieces for the Spanish label Semantica. She curated the Atelier Elektronik series for the Darmstadt Summer Course 2018.
Awards: Marianne.von.Willemer.04 Frauen.Netzkunst.Preis [2004], fair music award for female:pressure [2007], Prix Ars Electronica Honorary Mention for female:pressure, category digital communities [2009], outstanding artist award Musik [2012], Austrian national grant for composition [2013], Content Award for MORPHEME [2014], Frauenring award for rendering outstanding services to equal opportunities for women in electronic music and digital arts [2015], VUT "Sonderpreis der Jury" [2015].
