MIMU MERZ (Vienna, Austria)

Working with digital loopers and plugins to process the recorded voices, my vocal performance uses wayward phrasings and introspective lyrics, sometimes mumbled, sometimes pointed out clearly, like a salty finger in the wound of ongoing life. Puns and structures. Patterns and norms. Lofty love and wicked war.

Mimu Merz is a Vienna based graphic designer, media artist, singer and songwriter. Her solo performance “mimu at nite“ was performed with voice, accordion and laptop.
