Mila Chiral is a Berlin-based dancer-choreographer, electronic musician and DJ, who works in composing sounds and poetry as well as bodies and movements in time and space.
Educated in dance and classical music since childhood, the influences of her youth include classical music as well as minimal music, new and dark wave, new romantics, NDW and the music of Prince and his collaborators.
Following the rise of electronic music in the early 90s, she started collaborating with (electronic) musicians for her choreographies and made her first steps into electronic music production 1995 with the project BrainScan, together with Bernhard Bockelbrink.
Her works of art are colorful, multi-layered and four-dimensional. In fact, her artist name refers to chirality — the quality of an object that it cannot be superimposed on its own reflection.
In her music you hear sounds and poetry create clear rhythmical patterns, repetitive or accentuated seemingly always longing for moving bodies in the spaces and ambience she creates. In that sense, her musical and poetic compositions might be seen as chiral to her choreographic approach.
Her DJ-Sets lead bodies to move with driving, fast techno-beats, uplifting rhythms and colorful sound spaces with acidic influences and glittering accents.
Mila Chiral was part of minutektiv, a group of music producers from Berlin. They published and performed their Minutes Collections from time to time - collections of one minute long tracks, each produced in an hour or less following a collective guideline until 2018.
Mila Chiral is also one of the organizers of MEETUP Berlin, a community of female-identifying, trans and non-binary artists in the fields of electronic music and arts. She is also a member of female:pressure.
