Natalie Beridze is a Georgian music composer and songwriter. Beridze was born in Tbilisi, Georgia in 1979. After graduating from college she started making short films and music videos. Her video “Game” received the 2nd price at Oberhausen short film festival in 2002. Shortly after Natalie started focusing on music, ultimately becoming a full time composer.
She landed a record deal in Germany and moved to Cologne until 2008 and produced music under the artist name TBA.
Since 2004 Natalie Beridze has been performing live concerts worldwide and is known as first female electronic music artist from Georgia, having released music in Europe on Max.E, Monika Enterprise, CMYK, Laboratory Instinct, Chainmusic, DADO Records and Apollo Records.
In addition to her solo projects she has collaborated with artists such as Thomas Brinkmann, AGF (Antye Greie), Gudrun Gut, Joerg Follert, Marcus Schmickler, Nika Machaidze aka Nikakoi, Ryuichi Sakamoto, Gacha Bakradze.
Besides her contribution to Georgian electronic music and song writing, Beridze works on compositions for acoustic instruments, orchestra and choir. Some of her piano pieces were performed by Georgian-Swiss pianist Tamro Kordzaia and Swiss-born Vera Kappeler.
Beridze currently lives and works in Tbilisi, Georgia.
She teaches at CES (Creative Educational Studio) song-writing and music production class.
Since 2013 Beridze has been working in Georgian internet and cable television about culture, called Artarea TV, where she runs her weekly show, called Live @ Twilight.
The show aims to create a contemporary Georgian composer's anthology. Every Friday evening, Beridze invites a new composer to perform a live set, which is filmed and later aired on cable TV and internet.
Her latest solo album “GULIAGAVA” has been released in May 2016 on monika enterprise, the label of Gudrun Gut.
