Susanna Ridler

(born in 1968, in Waldhausen, Austria, resident in Vienna), composer.  Ridler studied acting in Vienna and voice and music in Holland and the USA. She has worked with computer composition for many years. Ridler has developed her own song forms and artificial sounds. She strives to find an original approach to well- known songs for material as a singer / interpreter  and as composer/ arranger. Stylistically, her music is a mixture of electronic music, pop and jazz. She uses state of the art studio techniques such as sampling, alienation, time stretching, pitch bending and remixing. She has also composed for theater and radio dramas.
