Amelie      Duchow’s   interest   in   electronic   music   grew   in   the   90s   being   close   friend   to   several   Munich   DJs.   Getting into   a   “new   world”   of   DJing   and   underground   clubbing,   she   soon   started   to   develop   her   own   music   style, continously searching for new international electronic and contemporary sound material. In   2003   moving   from   Munich   to   Italy   her   slow   minimal   ambient   sound,   presented   under   her   moniker   Fr äulein Amelie , entered directly into various locations in Florence. In   2005   she   presents   her   DJ   set   in   Italy   at   the   “Stazione   Leopolda”   in   Florence.   Several   sets   follow   in   Italy   as   at the “Tune up” with Heinz Tronninger and the Dining Rooms. She   joined   as   an   artist   the      Italian   label   Suite   inc.   participating   at   the   label   night   at   “Festival   della   Creativita’” 2006 with Murcof, Technophonic Orchestra, Drama and Tco. Fr äulein   Amelie    was   on   stage   in   various   editions   of   the   “Music   and   visual   festival   /MUV”   in   Livorno   and Florence,   developing   her   sets   to   be   strong   of   atmosphere   by   the   mix   of   glitch,   ambient   and   experimental electronic music. Fr äulein   Amelie   presents   her   live   mix   set   at   the   festival   Adrenalina   in   Rome   2009,   taking   a   stronger   experiemtal direction mixing micorelectronic sound patterns with field recordings and minimal rythms. In 2012 Fr äulein Amelie  presents Pianoform a live mix set inspired by the sound of the piano. The   live   set   Pianoform   based   on   piano   compositions   is   a   fusion   between   strict   time   lacking   sounds   and   abstract contemporary sonorities. In   2007   in   collaboration   con   Marco   Monfardini   they   launch   the   project   SCHNITT   an   artistic   italian/german exchange,    motivated    by    the    common    interest    for    experimental    minimal    sound    underlined    by    their    visual interpretations. In   2007   the   duo   Schnitt   releases   “Pferdchen”   -   12”   for   the   Swiss   label   Invisible   Recordings;   with   Registrazioni Italiane they bring out their tracks on “Minimalismo Italiano” and on the compilation Snob Night for RAI Trade. In   2008   Amelie   Duchow   and   Marco   Monfardini   collaborate   on   the   realization   of   Airloop   1.0   an   installation   and performance based on a video loop of 40 minutes. In   2010   Schnitt   presents   SYNCHROPATH   an   audio/video   project   focused   on   a   synchronism   as   a   method   of composing. In 2011 SYNCHROPATH is released on DVD. With   Synchropath,   Schnitt   participates   at   several   international   Festivals   as   the   Elektra   Festival   in   Montreal,   the Gogbot Festival in Enschede and at the Robot Festival in Bologna. 2011   for      the   presentation   of      the   lighting   installation   GROWING   BY   NUMBERS   at   the   Grattacielo   Pirelli   in     Milan, the duo Schnitt accompanies the event with a site specific sonorization. In   behalf   of   their   participation   at   the   International   Feel   Festival   in   Florence   2013,   Schnitt   presents   a   limited edition release of the SYNCHROPATH LP. At   the   International   Feel   Festival   in   Florence   2013   hold      at   the   museum   Marino   Marini,   Amelie   Duchow   will presented   a   preview   for      her   solo   audio/video   project   [   TONSTICH      ].   The   official   presentation   of   [   TONSTICH   ] is planned to be in  March 2014. [   TONSTICH   ]      is   based   on   the   creation   of   a   sonorous   dress,   an   audio/video   performance   which   explores   with sounds   and   images   the   creative/industrial   process   of   the   realization   of   an   imaginary   dress   which   characteristics are completely entrusted to  the sound structure .
