Annette Krebs, b. 1967, studied music and concert guitar in Frankfurt/Main, and has lived in Berlin since 1993.
She has worked intensively in the crossover area between improvisation and composition, exploring the possibilities of the prepared guitar with regard to sound, structure, noise, the mixing of materials, and space.
Various preparation methods are used to produce noises and sounds, which are then enlarged through the use of sometimes high levels of amplification. The sound of the amplification and mixingboards, additional tapes, radios and objects are used as musical material.

She works also in the field of electroacoustic composition, de- and reconstructing selected sound and noise material. Fragments of noises, of words and sentences are used to remind, to suggest certain meanings, fusing with the sounds to a surreal, abstract soundscape.

Collaborations among others with:
Chris Abrahams, Alessandro Bosetti, Burkhard Beins, Sandra Becker, Lucio Capece, Rhodri Davies, Jim Denley, Axel Dörner, Robin Hayward, Charlotte Hug, Christoph Kurzmann, Sachiko M, Kaffe Matthews, Wade Matthews, Chico Mello, Andrea Neumann, Michael Renkel, Ana Maria Rodriguez, Keith Rowe, Ignatz Schick, Burkhard Stangl, Taku Sugimoto, Luca Venitucci, Michael Vorfeld, Marc Wastell, Steffi Weismann, Otomo Yoshihide,...
