While sparse piano arrangements and vocals formed the initial focus of her musical solo works, Mohna now increasingly devotes herself to fragments of looped and pitched clarinets, field recordings, arpeggiator synthesizers and 78bpm rhythms. Her characteristic voice lends structure to songs that nevertheless defy the conventions of verse and chorus by means of overdubs and loops. In this way, a complex sound atmosphere is created that shifts registers between improvisation, sound installation and pop music.
Mona Steinwidder lives and works as a freelance artist and musician in Hamburg. Alongside her solo-project Mohna, she is a member of the experimental pop Band Me Succeeds and a longtime collaborator of electronic producer Christian Löffler.
