the contrasts fit together like the piece of a puzzle and paint a
fascinating kaleidoscopic image"
Sigil Of Brass: “The soundtrack to an embrace that seeks not sentiment”
Jana Irmert is a Berlin-based sound and media artist.
Being interested in the vague, irrational, less tangible aspects of existence,
she translates inner images into atmospheric audiovisual or sonic spaces that
invite the listener to connect with in their own way.
Having produced both solo pieces and numerous
collaborations, her work features electroacoustic multichannel compositions,
audiovisual installations and joint projects with filmmakers, dancers and
visual artists. Her installations and compositions have been presented
at international festivals and exhibitions such as the New York City
Electroacoustic Music Festival, Sound Explicit (Slovenia), the I-Park
Environmental Arts Biennale (USA), the Academy of Arts Berlin and the Banff Centre (Canada).
‘End of Absence’ is Jana Irmert’s debut album,
bringing together six sound works that merge field recordings, experimental
electronic sounds and vocal patterns into unique multilayered soundscapes. Her piece 'untitled (slow)' has recently been selected for the EUROPEAN SOUNDART AWARD 2016 exhibition.
The album has been
released in October 2016.
