Sónar by Day - SonarDôme presented by Red Bull
Arpeggiators play a central role in the dreamy electronic soundscapes of German DJ/producer Annegret Fiedler, AKA Perel. Synths pulse up and down over dreamy electronic pads and stripped-down, four-to-the-floor beats, building into subdued kaleidoscopes of color. Fiedler is influenced by punk trailblazers and synth-pop pioneers alike – from Nina Hagen and DAF to Depeche Mode and Kraftwerk – and she’s eager to test boundaries and try new things as she uses her music to wrangle with personal emotions and express an innate appreciation for nature and color. She’s been working as a solo artist since 2014, after playing in a live electronic act called Klub.Mono, and she signed to DFA Records in 2017, working hard in the time since on her debut full-length LP, the acclaimed “Hermetica”.
