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
