Ursula Winterauer aka Gischt lives and works as a composer, sound artist and curator in Vienna. In her work she deals with raw and brutal sounds in digital overdetermination and contrasts these with the clear and human nature of her own voice. Her eclectic soundscapes deliver differentiated interpretations of the genres industrial, techno and ambient, which are reflected by means of bass guitar, synthesizer and electro-smog clouds.
She works as a sound designer and composer for film and develops compositions for contemporary dance. Winterauer is co-founder and label boss of Ventil Records, co-organizer and commercial director of the Unsafe+Sounds Festival and curator of New Salt Festival.
