The music of Zurich-based artist Belia Winnewisser is an enthralling full-body experience. Her sound oscillates between soft noisescapes and brutal salvos, equal parts pop, sound art, and club music, appealing as much to the heart as the head and the gut. Winnewisser started working with sound synthesis and live electronics during her Bachelor degree in Sound Arts. She received her Master of Contemporary Arts Practice from the Bern University of the Arts in 2018.
Winnewisser has been active as a singer, composer, and keyboard player for various band projects, like the dissolved goth unit Evje, indie super group Silver Firs, or pop duo α=f/m. In the last few years, however, she has been prioritizing her own music production, solo concerts, and DJ gigs.
She also composes music for audio books, stage theatre, and leads workshops in songwriting and producing.
Winnewisser’s debut album, Radikale Akzeptanz, was released on the Lucerne label Präsens Editionen in 2018. Her latest Ep A Comet Blazing In the Empyrean came out on the Cologne-based label SPA Recordings in 2020. She is currently working on her second album, SODA, which will be released on Präsens Editionen in the summer.
