Miss Milivolt (Angela de Weijer) is a multidisciplinary artist, composer and dj based in Eindhoven - NL. 

Different listening to - and thinking about the world as we know it is central in Angela’s practice. Work starts with a question, observation or even a dad joke. De Weijer explores large and dramatic subjects (composing for air raid siren systems) as well as tiny things (conceptual sound).

Artistic research combined with a phenomenological approach are given elements of their process, the other ingredients are renewed with every project. Angela enjoys questioning the order of things and has the intention to reach a certain shift in perspective. 

Since 2020, Angela is one of three synthlords in experimental-ambient-drone-edm collective Drone Assembly
