Johanna Hedva

Living between Los Angeles and Berlin, Korean-American writer, musician, artist and astrologer Johanna Hedva creates sonic alchemy that boils mystical doom, intimate metal, hag blues and cave music into a unique alloy. Their latest album "Black Moon Lilith in Pisces in the 4th House" pulls influence from Korean Pansori singing, which demands rehearsal next to waterfalls, and fans it with the fumes of Diamanda Galás, Keiji Haino, Sunn O))) and Sainkho Namtchylak. Globally recognized as a crucial theorist, touching on themes of gender, disability and chronic illness, Hedva's influential 2016 essay "Sick Woman Theory" has been translated into eight languages and they have published two books, 2018 novel "On Hell" and "Minerva the Miscarriage of the Brain", a collection of essays and poems that was released last year.
