MIA ZABELKA is a sound artist, composer as well as an experimental violinist and vocalist from Vienna.
Comprehensively educated in classical music from early age on, she continued to construct and explore the limits of sound and music in a language entirely her own, based on the de- and reconstruction of the violin’s sonic possibilities, expanding the range of the instrument using live electronic devices, preparing it through the insertion of alien objects between or on the strings and innovative performance techniques.
She has collaborated with artists such as Robin Rimbaud, Pauline Oliveros, Electric Indigo, Dälek, Lydia Lunch, Elliott Sharp, Phill Niblock, John Zorn, John Russell, Maggie Nicols and Philippe Petit.
She has given concerts and performances at many Festivals throughout Europe, America and Asia. Numerous CD, vinyl and video releases. Recipient of highly regarded prizes (3-time winner of the Prix Ars Electronica) and awards, she was a guest of the DAAD’s (German Academic Exchange Service’s) international artists’ programme in Berlin and the Fulbright Commission in New York.
Recently MIA ZABELKA was awarded THE AKADEMIA Music Award 2018 in the category “experimental music” for her composition “FOR PAULINE OLIVEROS”, the Outstanding Tour support by Music Export Austria 2016 and the Outstanding Artist award by the BKA Federal Chancelley of Austria 2015 in the category “sound art in the public space”.
