The festival „Heroines of Sound – Early and Current Heroines of Electronic Music“ opens with the world premiere of Mariam Gviniashvili’s electronic composition „Chaos and Awe“ and works by Alla Zagaykevych and Ying Wang, interpreted by the Ukrainian singer and pianist Viktoriia Vitrenko. In audiovisually conceived performances, the contemporary music ensemble LUX:NM explores the field of tension between instrumental sound and electronics. New works by the Canadian composer Kotoka Suzuki will be performed, as well as works by Misha Cvijović, Charlotte Seither, Mirela Ivičević and Juliana Hodkinson (premiere). A festival highlight will be the program following for solo percussion and electronics with percussionist Aleksander Wnuk and recent works by Sarah Nemtsov and Nicole Lizée.

As Germany’s only cross-genre feminist music festival, Heroines of Sound is internationally recognized and unique in the European festival landscape. The festival performs outstanding early works as well as forward-looking positions by younger artists. Having grown out of the Berlin scene in 2014, the festival is now networked with partners in Germany and around the world. The idea is to make the connecting lines of different genres tangible and to continuously strengthen the presence of female artists in the art and music scene.
