Mirela Ivičević

(born in Split, Croatia, resident in Vienna), composer, sound artist and performer. Her artistic work focuses mainly on the exploration of reflective and subversive potential of sound as a major as well as a supporting part of the concept. Her sonic fiction uses bits and pieces of reality, abducted from their natural environment into a surreal acoustic world where they are striped naked, questioned, played with, laughed at and reused in order to create alternative experiences which would help to better understand or transform their real-world origin. The themes of her work are predominantly issues of identity, otherness, physical and mental freedom and challenges they face in contemporary social environments, especially in those she has been part of. The result is a patchwork of abruptly exchanging, hyperactive structures, distorted occurrences of south-slavic reality, blocks of noise and traces of trip-hop.
