Antye Greie

(born in 1969 in East Germany, resident in Hailuoto, Finland), composer, vocalist, producer, digital song writer, performer, calligrapher and digital media artist. Antye Greie, also known as AGF, was born and raised in East Germany. In the last decade Greie released 20 full length records and played over 300 live performances world wide. The start of her solo work was marked by the artistic exploration of digital technology. On her first solo album, Head slash Bauch, she converted fragments of HTML script and software handbooks into a form of electronic poetry and deconstructed pop. The artist produces visuals for her live performances and installations showing calligraphic stills and experimental video. In 2009, the album EinzelkŠmpfer and an audiovisual installation Reflections On the Wall followed and regained wide attention. Her poetry, which she converts into electronic music, pop songs, calligraphy and digital media, has been presented as live performances and sound installations in museums, auditoriums, streets, theatres, concert halls and clubs throughout Europe, in North America and Asia in festivals such as Ars Electronica Linz, Sonar Barcelona, Transmediale Berlin, Grm Festival Paris. Greie's installation work began in 2000 during a residency at the Berlin Contemporary Art Centre Powedil, where she staged an open source event, by inviting the public to contribute sound and visuals into the performance. In 2001 she wrote the exhibition sound track Berlin Klang, for the Main Sonar Exhibition in Barcelona, and in 2004, in collaboration with Vadislav Delay, she exhibited 21 sound pieces in black boxes and placed them into a white cube at the Garage Festival.
