Abigail Toll (UK/DE) is an experimental music artist based in Berlin. Her psychoacoustic soundworlds combine ambient, electroacoustic techniques which unfold as meditation and upheaval. Her artistic research focuses on data aesthetics and harmonic chaos as a mode for critical thinking, which is often in collaboration with musicians, artists and writers. Matrices of Vision is the title of her forthcoming debut release on Shelter Press which premiered as an ensemble performance at the Klosterruine in Berlin with KW Institute of Contemporary Art.
