Involved in the german underground club scene during the 90ies TECHNO is the source of inspiration for Amelie Duchow’s interest in electronic music. Strongly influenced by glitch and ambient her research for contemporary sound material leads into evolving her own individual experimental electronic music. In 2003 she moves to Italy and joins the electronic music label Suite inc. In 2007 in collaboration with the media artist Marco Monfardini they launch the project Schnitt, an artistic italian/german exchange, motivated by the common interest in electronic music and visual art. The duo works in the transitional area between music, art and technology focusing with their projects on the coherence between audio and video. Schnitt presents the audio/video live performances SYNCHROPATH and their current project MEMORY CODE at international audiovisual festivals across Europe, Canada and Korea. MEMORY CODE is the current audio/video project by Schnitt with the central focus on the visual memory. This immersive audio visual live performance has been presented in contemporary art museums and audiovisual festivals throughout Europe and in Korea. At the International Feel Festival in Florence 2013 Amelie Duchow presents a preview for her solo audio/video project TONSTICH. TONSTICH is based on the creation of a sonorous dress, an audio/video live performance which explores towards sound and moving images the creative/industrial process of the realization of an imaginary dress which characteristics are completely entrusted to the sound structure. In 2014 the album TONSTICH is released on Sync. Amelie performs live in Germany, Poland, Italy and UK. In 2016 she presents the audio/video installation KLEIDERKONSTRUKTION for the edition BAU 13 at the Gallery for Modern and Contemporary art Lorenzo Vani, Viareggio/Italy. Amelie Duchow composes her work KLEIDERKONSTRUKTION starting from the construction parameters of a dress paper pattern. The audio composition of KLEIDERKONSTRUKTION is released as a limited edition CD inserted in a soundwave, incised in a white caneté cardboard. In 2016 she collaborates with the author and senior lecturer in film and television studies Gary Needham, presenting together a live audio performance for the event Fashion Continuum at Nottingham Contemporary. The audio composition “Gimp” by Amelie Duchow is inspired by the text “Bringing out the gimp”, Fashion Theory 18:2 by Gary  Needham, exclusively released on CD in collaboration with Yvonne Trew and Gary Needham for the Fashion Continuum event at Nottingham Contemporary, UK. In collaboration with Gianluca Sibaldi the duo SCHNITT presents the site specific audio/video performance SCANAUDIENCE for the opening of the LEV Festival in 2019; the live performance is based on the realtime scanning of the audience.
