Jana Irmert is a sound artist and composer based in Berlin. Her sonic explorations take on various forms – from live performance and multichannel composition to joint projects with filmmakers, dancers and visual artists. Being interested in phenomena like temporality and impermanence, alienation and the ecological crisis, she creates atmospheric audiovisual and sonic spaces ‘that work with dis/harmony in such a way as to mirror our imperfect world at the moment.’ (TJ Norris, Toneshift).
Jana Irmert has released two albums on Fabrique Records which received critical praise from various music blogs and magazines and have been internationally broadcast on RAI 3, Resonance FM and BBC Radio 3.
She is co-founder of Studio am Fluss, a Berlin-based company specialising in sound for picture and has contributed sound design and music for feature films, documentaries, VR experiences and video installations. For her experimental soundtrack for the feature documentary “Stress” by Florian Baron she received the German Documentary Film Music Award 2019. Her film sound portfolio can be seen here.
Recent collaborations have included projects with Jóhann Jóhannsson, Klaus Maria Brandauer and Christopher Chaplin.
