Susanne Kirchmayr aka Electric Indigo has been active as a DJ, composer, and musician since 1989. As a techno DJ and music producer, she transforms highly abstract dance music into electronic music, which emerges from techno to attain very similar results to academic electronic music. In the 1990s she worked at the legendary Hardwax record store in Berlin. In 1998 she founded the female:pressure network, which was awarded an honorary mention at the Prix Ars Electronica in 2009. As a composer, she received the »outstanding artist award« at the Prix Ars Electronica in 2012 and the Austrian State Scholarship for Composition from the BMUKK in 2013. The artist received composition commissions for Wien Modern and Heroines of Sound, among others. In 2016 she led a workshop on granular synthesis at the Darmstädter Ferienkurse.
