Dissonant Art Music
last remains of empathy ~ clotted into sounds
Jeanne Artemis Strieder [ʒan ɑːrtɪmɪs ʃtriːder] is a composer and artist.
The purpose of her work is to create solace and compassion for the invisible suffering of the many and the few. The results are individual aural bodies that seek connection with those who experience darkness.
The origins for her musical mind were found by her at an early age in the european modernism, the achievements of cultures outside of europe and the innovative forms of the underground music scenes (e.g. metal, noise, glitch).
Her artistic endeavours also include her internationally acclaimed Metal ensemble “Coma Cluster Void”, which combine the instrumentation of modern metal with her techniques of dissonant art music. As an artist, she is working with digital, traditional and mixed media. As a producer, she worked with renowned artists of the metal scene.
Her music is performed around the world, in e.g. Argentina, Brazil, Canada, Chile, Colombia, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Greece, Iceland, Iran, Italy, Mexico, Sweden, United Kingdom and USA.
