Lila-Zoé Krauß (*1994, Alice Springs) is a multimedia artist and electronic musician based in Berlin. Between 2015 and 2020 Krauß studied art and performance at HFBK Hamburg and the California Institute of the Arts (LA).
Using the pseudonym L Twills, her practice unfolds around live performance, installations, video and album production. With the transdisciplinary project series Rhythm Imprints, Krauß explores sound phenomena and music as storage systems for memory, emotion and experience, especially in the context of new technologies.
In the process, complex and non-linear narratives emerge whose protagonists often undergo psychological borderline experiences and abjectification.
After many performances in venues like, among others, Golden Pudel Club, Übel&Gefährlich, Cashmere Radio, Fusion Festival, NAVEL LA, Montez-Press-Radio New York, HKW Berlin, Goldsmiths London and Kampnagel Summer Festival, Live Art Festival, her debut album [Freedom/Fiction] was released in 2020 (funded by Label Förderung Hamburg). Krauß’ works, such as the sound installation Unsound Methods or the experimental short film RI04: Inge, raise us from the dead! have been shown at Galerie Oel-Früh, various group exhibitions and at the Brecht Festival Augsburg. She has received grants from the DAAD, the HFBK Freundeskreis, and most recently from Musikfonds (German Federal Minister of Culture and Media). Krauß is co-founder of the transdisciplinary artist* collective ZOLLO, with whom she realized a series of media projects under the motto No Public Space, No Institution, No Service (project titles: There Is No Time, There Is No Space, There Is No Satisfaction). Since 2020, her radio show Rhythm Imprints can be heard monthly on Cashmere Radio Berlin.
