Anna Sharifi is Danish-Iranian electronic music composer and live performer based in Berlin.

Anna was trained in classical piano and jazz vocal but since moving to the German capital, her love and passion for electronic music and the underground techno club culture has evolved. More than just the music itself, the philosophy and community behind techno inspired Anna to become part of the scene herself. 

Synthesisers, moving basses, strong vocals and – at times luring, at times hard hitting – electronic beats are key elements in Anna’s melodic and driven music, and her sound is a mix of Scandinavian clarity, Oriental longing, Berlin techno and raw emotions. 

She just released an array of new singles available on all streaming platforms and has more new music dropping this Spring.

Furthermore, what technical studies and (if applicable) new notational approaches for melody, rhythm, timbre, and interaction derived from these metaphors can best facilitate this goal?
