Clara Chill pushes elements of electronic, pop and classical music into new areas and thus creates her own universe of sounds; a fusion of haunting melodies and intense beats, combined with cinematic soundscapes and experimental voice effects. Her music reflects the long journey as an artist through the galaxy of oscillating frequencies and vibrating subbasses, torn between light and dark.
Growing up in Berlin and undergoing a classical music education from an early age, Clara quickly followed the path of songwriting and composing. This led to a number of prizewinning works, such as 'Gloomy Soul', for which she was awarded as best soloist at the Berliner Festspiele.
In the following years, Clara worked in recording studios in Berlin, composing for films, audio plays and commercials. It also influenced her personal productions, which are often characterized by dramatic narratives and filmic aspects. Over the past years, Clara has been performing as a solo artist mainly at festivals such as Antaris Project and Ozora Festival, often under the alias Acousmatica.
After studying Popular Music and Recording in Manchester and graduating in 2016 with a First Class BA Honours Degree in Music, majoring in composition and recording, Clara moved to Aarhus in Denmark to follow up her studies in Electronic Music Composition at the Royal Academy of Music. As part of her master’s project she has been working on an interactive musical device for children with autism. Her research project continues and aims to raise awareness of autism and the importance of including music interventions in the treatment of autism. The idea is to provide autistic individuals a musical companion that can support them in their daily lives—a companion that can be used at home, in school or even as a therapeutic tool complementing goals of therapies, for example, occupational therapy.
