Denise Ritter is a sound artist and composer.
She implements electroacoustic compositions in sound installations, which base on recordings of concrete sound situations. The site-specifity of these recordings often plays a key role in her works.
For the musique concrète / industrial pieces aka „Schachtanlage Gegenort“ she makes sound recordings of the coal mining and iron and steel industries.
In 2013 Denise Ritter initiated the global, participatory sound art project „small world wide“.
