Billy Roisz is a musician and filmmaker based in Vienna. Self-taught, Billy Roisz sees her creative roots in the extremely open DIY environment of the digital and analog electronic and noise music scene in Vienna at the Y2K turning point (phonotaktik, rhiz, mego etc.). She has been working with video and sound since 1998. The aesthetics of image and sound glitches, such as feedback and distortion, is one of her central fields of experimentation. Billy Roisz’s works have been presented at numerous festivals and museums, including the Biennale São Paulo, the Donaueschinger Musiktage, Tate Modern, and Centre Pompidou. Her brand new solo recording »bajo« has been released as a 12-inch vinyl. Roisz has received numerous awards including the 2021 Austrian Art Prize in the category of film art. She lives in Vienna and became a member of the Vienna Secession in 2022.
