Bio

For IVANA MER music emerges from silence, inspired by the chants of the sea, forces of nature and by the inner world of the soul. Slovak born composer and singer, began her artistic journey in Prague while finishing her studies of cultural anthropology. Here she has produced her first electro-acoustic compositions that were used in the Belgian dance project Dancers! and got into the semifinals of the international electro-acoustic festival LEM Le Prix Russolo. Her musical activities are closely connected to travels, which besides opening new horizons, are the source of collaborations with producers and talented musicians from Europe and the world.

In 2015 she was nominated in the category "Discovery of the Year - RadioHead Awards" (music awards in Slovakia) and her song "Diamond fields" created with producer Marc-Eric Laine was leading at the first position in RADIO_FM chart, Slovakia. Her singing voice is heard in the song "Tak sa stále pýtam" for the Slovakian film "Hrana - 4 filmy o Marekovi Brezovskom" directed by Patrik Lančarič. 

In 2016 her debut album titled “EARLY WORKS” was released by Slovakian record label Slnko Records with very positive reception from the audience and critics in various parts of the globe. You can hear her music also in the dance film "Personal Pronouns" from the director Andrea Sudorová, awarded at the Dance Film Festival San Francisco, USA.

For the year 2017 she is preparing “EARLY WORKS REMIXED”, an album of remixes from her debut —with artists from Japan, Argentina, Uruguay, Australia, and Greece. On the other hand the release of EP in collaboration with artist I AM PLANET (minimalistic, neo-classical music). You can listen to the first single "Eyja" known from the compilation "Ostrov Hudby" (”Island of Music”, Lala Music Export, tribute to the deceased journalist Juraj Kušnierik).

She perceives life itself as music that includes all the genres, what naturally leads her to participate in the wide range of projects from playing music for theatre performances, composing for video art, contemporary dance, singing for poetic rap and acoustic minimalism.
