Julia Mihály (*1984) works in the field of contemporary music, performance and electroacoustic music. She connects her voice with live-electronics using various kinds of controllers like wii remote, gamepads or usb cameras to modulate her sound. Related to this Max/MSP has become her mother tongue. Furthermore field recordings and the use of analog synthesizers mark substantial components in her electroacoustic compositions.

The crossover of different music styles is probably the most distinctive feature of her music. Together with the colleagues of her former ensemble, called [-+] without additives NO STARS BIG BAND, she created the most bone-crunching, gut-ripping and brain-melting music imaginable, influenced by wi†ch house, minimal and zombie jazz. Since 2012 she is part of the Electronic-Duo CLUBbleu, that links its influences from electroacoustic music with elements of Electronica, Industrial and Death Metal. Besides this she collaborates regularly with other musicians, composers and New Music ensembles.


Julia Mihály studied classical singing and electronic composition at Hanover University of Music, Drama and Media, and completed her studies with workshops at the ZKM Karlsruhe, STEIM Amsterdam and the International Summer Courses for New Music Darmstadt.

She received an artist-in-residence scholarship at the Atelier Klangforschung (Studio for Sound Research) at the University of Würzburg. She has also been awarded numerous scholarships and prizes, including the International Music – Scholarship by the Art Foundation of North Rhine – Westphalia and the first prize of the Stockhausen Foundation for Music. In 2014 she has been selected to participate the Composer Performer Workshop at the International Summer Courses for New Music Darmstadt.

Julia Mihály is a board member of the German Society for Electroacoustic Music (DEGEM), works for the DEGEM Webradio@ZKM and is a member of the Society for New Music Frankfurt (fgnm).

If You Liked My Posts I Wouldn’t Need To Express Myself In Real Life

[performance for voice, live-electronics & tape]

premiered @ international summer courses for new music darmstadt, 2014

The contextualisation of material leads to an interference of aesthetic perception: Brian’s beats form a symbiosis with musical quotations of Helmut and 1980ies porn-music, while Wolfgang’s harmony gets a glossy make over courtesy of DJ Bobo. The performance is a metaphor for the overwhelming flow of information that we are exposed in everyday life. The text consists of Facebook posts pulled from various discourses about the “Alltags” aesthetic movement in German contemporary music.



[electroacoustic composition series for 4 – 12 loudspeakers ]

scape_1 premiered @ DEGEM concert 2013, HMTMH Hanover || scape_2 & scape_3 premiered @ Kultur-Etage Messestadt 2014, Munich, 2014 || scape_4 premiered @  Radio Depot, Dortmund, 2014 || scape_12 premiered @ USAP Berlin, 2014

scape_ is a series of compositions that consists of musical material generated from modulated underwater recordings and sounds of crickets. The complex spectrum of underwater sounds of the River „Main“ in Frankfurt (Germany) in combination with recordings of insects leads to an extraordinary crystalline sonority. The soundscapes are removed from their former context, confronted with their diversity, and finally transformed until they reach the highest level of intersection. Rhythms and melodies arised as artefacts from various sound synthesis methods are additionally integrated as musical material. scape_12 is a 12-channel – composition. it discovers the calm and sparkling backside of a large city beside all the common urban noises.

scape_1 has been released on Edition DEGEM 2014.


music box sampler

[piece for 1 performer with 36 music boxes & live-electronics]

premiered @ Heidelberger Frühling, 2014

This is the first piece with my Music_Box_Sampler, consisting of 36 small music boxes (playing 9 different songs), equipped with contact microphones, connected to Max / MSP. The music boxes are screwed on a wooden box that amplifies the sound of the music boxes. The performer plays every single music box only for a very short moment, to produce only 1 – 3 sounds per instrument. So every music box works like one piano key. The 9 given songs define the pitch range of the piece. The live input of the music boxes runs through two high pass filters with random cutoff frequency. The filter’s output runs through 8 different transposers with constantly changing transposition values and in total 16 different delay lines. The original sound input is also led into frequency modulation and at the end of the piece a distortion sub patch is triggered. this creates a distorted music box sound that reminds of the typical old school 8 bit sounds.

Sarastros Pforten

[16-channel Sound Installation]

premiered @ Mozartlabor / Mozartfest Würzburg, 2014

Sound Installation by Julia Mihály and Felix Leuschner.

It’s basically the reflection on the reflection: The sound installation reflected on the Mozartlabor, that contains the reflection on Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. The facilities of the Festival had been equipped with several hidden microphones to catch official panel discussions as well as private opinions about topics around Wolfgangs music.

© nmz, Foto: Pat Christ

…actually Mozart has been a pop star of his time. Therefore it was the logical conclusion to fill his rhythms into a step sequencer, which is obviously a common tool in todays pop music.

So Wolfgang gave us his rhythmical counterpoint, field recordings and direct quotes collected during the festival provided the pitches and sound colors for this piece. We coded a polyphonic step sequencer in Max/MSP (up to 4 voices with 512 steps per voice are possible; time signature that can be chosen individually). During the installation 4 sequencers were running at the same time.

Sarastros Pforten is a critical review on this media overloaded, glossy figurehead event.

Lokalklang FFM

[tape music]

premiered @ Lokalklang Festival, Würzburg, 2014

The piece Lokalklang FFM was part of the Lecture Performance „Verortete Stimmen“ together with Elena Ungeheur within the Lokalklang Festival 2014. The performance contrasts the differences between “Lokalklang“ (local sound) and “Heimatklang“ (native sound) and reflects on the topic of „Home / Homeland.

Local Sound ranges from the sound of your local tram to a regional dialect. It’s a site-specific sound. Local Sound can be perceived as Native sound / Home sound, if it is related to a place you consider as “home“. —by the way… every field recording is technically speaking a Local Sound. My piece Lokalklang FFM is a Mashup of different Local Sounds I collected in Frankfurt/Main since winter 2012 (below you find an ingredient list of all sounds). My aim is to achieve a sort of acoustical imprint of the city.


Ingredient List:

1) Intro of the „Hesse Song“
2) a cash box
3) a fruit dealer
4) emty packaging
5) nature sounds of the „Wallanlagen“ park
6) street music
7) Blockupy protest
8) a man on the street
9) car horn
10) Badesalz
11) a little child @ Palmengarten (botanic garden)
12) construction area
13) a pimp and a prostitute
14) music at the Blockupy protest
15) a firefighter during the building demolition of the Afe-Tower
16) homeless men in the red-light district
17) Tram line 16
18) another prostitute (old woman)
19) a woman at the tram
20) a host
21) a child at the tram
22) an old woman at the mart
23) announcement out of a radio device
24) the „Skyliner“ (a train at Frankfurt Airport)
25) the river Main underwater
26) De Maddin
27) Feedback coming out of a police car’s loudspeaker system
28) crows
30) another homeless men
31) the bells of the Frankfurt cathedral
32) a public toilet
33) a baby at the tram
34) percussion drill
35) a begging woman
36) another pimp
37) protesters
40) elevator ot the Maintower


Wer von uns weiß noch welchen Weg er geht

[piece for tape, 1 analog synth and words ]

premiered @ SPRECHSTUNDE, Spitäle / VKU Würzburg, 2014

Die Realität ist „Jenseits von Eden“. Das Positive hat immer eine Kehrseite, denn „jede Blume hat ihren Schatten“ und „Träume verwehn, wenn sie nicht wissen, wo sie schlafen sollen“. Die Entfremdung unter uns, zwischen uns, bei uns. Wo ist die Wärme? – „Fernwärme“. Das Unvollkommene findet seine musikalische Entsprechung in Artefakten, unvorhersehbaren Nebenprodukten der Klangsynthese.

Reality is „Beyond Eden“. The positive as always its drawback, because „every flower has its own shadow“ and „dreams are blown away, if they don’t know where to sleep“. The alienation among us, between us. Where is the spiritual warmth? – „Long-distance heat“. The imperfect finds its musical translation in the use of artifacts, unpredictable side products of sound synthesis

*italicised: quotes taken from words by Rio Reiser and Reto Finger. (originaly in German)



[piece for two gamepad players, tape & live-electronics]

premiered @ next generation festival ZKM, Karlsruhe, 2011

Two persons equipped with a couple of rubber ducks enter the stage, going directly to a table with two screens and two gamepads on it. They are going to play a computer game against each other. It’s a sort of racing game. The player that reaches the finish first wins the game. The speed is controlled by the pressing certain buttons on the game pad. What both player don’t know is, that the game engine has some bugs in it. The „bugs“ are intended and therefore controlled during the game by the composer, who turns out to be a (hidden) third player in this game. 




[-+] without additives NO STARS BIG BAND

[antibiotic trashcore tour 2012]

live @ The electronic studios of North Germany Meeting Concert, Lübeck, 2012

Are you tired of being confused? This band will make it even worse! [-+] WITHOUT ADDITIVES NO STARS BIG BAND plays the most bone-crunching, gut-ripping and brain-melting music in the whole universe. Incorporating a handful of totally unrecognizable elements from the most obscure corners of music history, they not only combine them in most inappropriate ways, but most of all they create new disturbing music-genres, revealing so the self-mutating gene of music. Members: Damian Marhulets, Julia Mihály and Sebastian Wendt. 





Julia Mihaly Unerhörte Musik BKA

[trigger me]

is a concert that consists of 100 % voice! In connection with live electronics the entire sound spectrum is based on the vocal output of one singer.

In terms of chamber musical interactions between the performer and the computer the voice turns into an interactive antagonist of itself, in real time recorded, modulated and transformed in multiple ways. [trigger me] includes on the one hand works of Julia Mihály herself and on the other hand pieces written by other composers specially for Julia Mihály’s voice. 
 Mihaly Nono Tosh Leykum
Various types of electronic devices become an essential part of the performance, such as tablets, gamepads, sensors and different kinds of MIDI controllers. [trigger me] scans vocal border areas at the edge of classical singing and extended vocal techniques.

[trigger me] features the following composers: Karlheinz Essl, Stefan Hakenberg, Ole Hübner, Felix Leuschner, Julia Mihály, Iris ter Schiphorst, Martin Schüttler

DARK ENERGY – [frankfurt album]

For their “DARK ENERGY – frankfurt album“ CLUBbleu developed a special method for recycling urban soundscapes into musical sound material. The sound spectrum of the city Frankfurt am Main as a symbiosis of engine noises and domesticated nature turns into a substantial element of compositional structure.

For over one year CLUBbleu recorded various public spaces in Frankfurt focussing on so-called non-places. During their explorations concerning the musical quality of public spaces they observed a striking imbalance of auditory and visual impressions.

Associated with this, CLUBbleu question whether urban spaces – originally designed as local recreation areas – over time change into acoustic non-places.

CLUBbleu created a unique „sound of frankfurt“, based on polymorphic rhythm structures of sound waves reflecting between skyscrapers, sounds of circular saws and hammer blows spreading over the town, Europe’s largest building demolition to date and underwater recordings of the river Main. Especially the river works as a sort of natural band-pass-filter, that releases certain frequencies of the urban soundscapes, which are combined with sounds of ship’s propellers and flow generated noise.

The recontextualization of non-place sounds is part of CLUBbleu ’s recycling process as well as the collection of sound material, its synthetic modulation and its integration into their compositional approach.




2014 CLUBbleu have been on a 3-months field recording trip to Singapore. With a bunch of extraordinary experiences, fancy new instruments and several megabytes of sounds they just started producing their upcoming CD [DARK ~asian~ Singacore].

Sound Design for John Cage’s Song books @ Musiktheater im Revier Gelsenkirchen, 2012.


Self-built pressure sensors for a 49 m² large printed map of Concord. The interpreter of e.g. Solo No. 3, who has the instruction to „go from Fair Haven Hill down the river by boat and then inland to the house beyond Bloods„*, is able to trigger changes of sound modulation while searching different paths on the map during the performance.

Sounddesign  – Luigi Nono: „Das atmende Klarsein“, Ruhrtriennale 2012 

Luigi Nono Sounddesign Julia Mihály

„Das Atmende Klarsein“ is a composition for a vocal ensemble of 12 singers, bass flute, a stereo-tape and Electronics, written by Luigi Mono in 1980/81. The live-electronic part consists of a Harmonizer (two different frequencies), Delays and an 8-channel-spatialization.

Regarding to the size of the Gebläsehalle at the Landschaftspark Duisburg-Nord, where the concert within the Ruhrtriennale took place, I decided to convert this piece into a 10-channel-version. For the spatialization I used the vbap object in Max/MSP. The improvisation part at the end of the piece was manually controlled by a table. I used an ipad 2, connecting it via touchOSC with Max/MSP. Therefore I designed a GUI in touchOSC consisting basically of two large  X/Y-pads.

The concert was directed by Florian Helgath. Choir: ChorWerkRuhr  // Flute: Helen Bledsoe // At the mixing desk: Simon Böttler //Sounddesign: Julia Mihály
