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 and an EP on Fabrique Records and Important 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 soundtrack for the feature documentary “Stress” by Florian Baron she received the German Documentary Film Music Award in 2019. In 2021 she has been nominated for an Icelandic Edda Award for her sound design on Jóhann Jóhannsson’s film “Last and First Men”.
