Miss Milivolt (Angela de Weijer) is a multidisciplinary artist, composer and dj. Different listening to and thinking about the world as we know it is a consistent starting point in her practice. As a maker, Angela is a hybrid between detective and hunter. Artistic research and immersion in her current topic are an integral part of her output.

Her choices in subject matter range between large and dramatic (project: composing for the Dutch air raid siren system) to tiny (concept: infinite sound). Angela challenges herself to renew her methodologies as much as possible with every project, using the acquired knowledge to establish a shift in the perception of her audience - either temporary or permanent.
