Being interested in phenomena like temporality and impermanence, alienation and the ecological crisis, she creates atmospheric audiovisual and sonic spaces ‘that work with dis/harmony in such a way as to mirror our imperfect world at the moment.’ (TJ Norris, Toneshift).
Jana Irmert has released two albums on Fabrique Records, which both received critical praise from various music blogs and magazines and have been internationally broadcast on i.a. RAI 3, Resonance FM and BBC Radio 3.
She received the German Documentary Film Music Award 2019 for her soundtrack for the feature documentary "Stress" by Florian Baron.
Recent collaborations have included projects with Jóhann Jóhannsson, Klaus Maria Brandauer and Christopher Chaplin.
