ABOUT

Kritzkom is the solo project of Marine Drouan, musician and graphic designer, from Nantes (France) living in Berlin. She produces and play live electronic music with an assortment of machines interacting together. Her career as musician, DJ and producer started in 2002 in France where she studied graphic design. In 2008 she decided to move to Berlin to be more focused on her music. She worked the last ten years on several projects with releases on different labels like Seagrave, Where To Now? Records, Hylé Tapes, Disorientation...

She composes regularly soundtracks for videos or short movies. Exploring and connecting noisy textures and patterns. Observing and recording the nature, navigating between different hypnotic sounds.
