Catarina Pratter

(born in Vienna, 1977, resident in Vienna), composer. She is also known as “55orondy”, “55.rnd”and ca.tter. After completing studies at a Viennese arts school in 1996, Pratter, fascinated by techno and the musical trends that followed, devoted herself to the production of electronic music. She soon found the ideal partners for her project in Martin Stepanek and Matthias Lichtenegger. Their mutual project is called 55orondy. There followed numerous releases and live appearances. Later on, at the request of the Berlin labels Sue. mi and Monika Enterprise, Pratter began to do solo releases. her characteristic vocals, about which critics cannot agree whether they are sensitively enchanting or absently abstract, represent a fixed element of both projects. Further musical personalities of Catarina Pratter are “55.rnd” and “ca.tter”- with the second she has rediscovered her love for dark moods and abstract beats.
