Selected commissioned works:
Anna Lucia Nissen is a Berlin-based composer, singer and artist working at the intersection of music, performance and visual art.
Female mysticism, the position of the female body within a patriarchal society and a fascination with the women who defy it are recurring themes in her music. Through her lyrics she channels these characters; playing with the audiences perspectives and expectations using a method of alternative storytelling, which dips anachronistically in and out of different histories, both imagined and real.
Centered around a magnetic vocal delivery, she fuses elements of poetry, film-score and drone into ecstatic pop dirges that oscillate between hope and despair and allow dark and powerful moments to co exist with passages of fragility and softness.
Her songs are cinematic in the way they reveal their narratives, and she considers song writing to be akin to scoring an imagined film.
This informs and is informed by her work as a freelance composer
for films, performances and installations
shown in galleries, festivals and theatre spaces.
