Mars Dietz (she/it) is an intermedia sound artist from Brooklyn, NY, living between New York and Berlin. Its hybrid background includes multi-channel sound performance, electronic music production, writing, and further interdisciplinary media in a research-driven practice bent on historical analysis. Areas of focus include histories and fallout of extractivism; a critique of the human, rights, and human rights; and semi-fictionalized, transtemporal epistolary relation(s). Sometimes she also composes love songs about people and bodies of water.
Mars collaborates frequently with Berlin-based choreographers and multimedia artists as a composer and sound designer for theatrical performances, films and installations. It has an additional professional history in archives, database design, editing, administration, audio tech and more.

Thank you!
