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. It starts with a question, observation or even a dad joke. Artistic research and authentic immersion are always part of the process and come before output. 

Thematically we can go large and dramatic (like composing for air raid siren systems) to miniscule (conceptual sound). Angela aims to renew her methodologies with every project, using the acquired knowledge and skills to establish a temporary or permanent shift in the perception of the audience. 

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