Kata Dumur is a composer/producer and sound artist combining electronic compositions with vocal work and found sounds. Experimental, industrial and modern classical influences interweave in her dreamy and sometimes hypnotic tracks.
Born (and lived many years) in Warsaw, Poland. After 4 years of singing in a classical choir and solo training Kata started her individual project, combining electronic compositions with voice. During her first studies, she was interested in visual communication and parallelly explored electronic music with field recordings and software synthesizers. Worked at the experimental, contemporary music festival and association Turning Sounds in hometown Warsaw, taking great inspiration from contemporary artists. She had her own show at independent online radio Streamelite, specialized in new wave, electro, synth-pop and digital hardcore. In 2013 Kata moved to Munich, where she wrote and sang dreamy electronica in a duo DM-KD.
Her original music is inspired by new wave, electroacoustic composers, soundscapes and dramatic atmosphere, dark yet soft – projecting emotions and psychological states of the human mind.
She gained professional certificates at Point Blank (London) in Complete Electronic Music Composition and SAE Institute in Electronic Music Production. Since then, she’s also teaching creative music production techniques and encourages fellow producers to explore new sources of inspiration, whether in the world around us or in music theory. In 2018 she established a studio for creative audio – Found Waves. The studio focuses on educational practices and also produces audio work that tells stories with sound & music. Its sound walk premiered last year at Munich’s Creative Business Week.
